A Chinese Tomb
In 1954 an underground stone slab tomb was discovered in Beizhai village, a few kilometers away from the county seat of Yi'nan in Shandong Province in northeast China. It is lavishly decorated with bas-relief and sculptural carvings. In the 1960s it was reburied. If you went to see the tomb in 1993, this is all you would have seen. However, in June of '94, the site was re-excavated under the direction of Wu Wenqi and Zheng Yan. Another tomb, M2 (front, back, and side views,) 20 meters southeast of the bas-relief tomb (M1) was also excavated at this time. It is similar in lay-out and size, but was built with a combination of stone and bricks. Whereas tomb M1 has a stone cantilevered roof, the roof of tomb M2 has a brick, barrel-vaulted one. Although no relief carvings embellish the walls or roof, some 80 late Eastern Han burial objects were discovered inside. In 1995, funded by contributions from the local community, a museum was established at the site.
