Ancient tombs unearthed in Shaanxi (China)

Seventeen tombs dating back to the Xia and Shang dynasties (2,100 BCE- 1,100 BCE) have been unearthed at Donglongshan, in Shangzhou City of northwest China's Shaanxi Province.
      Archeologists say that Donglongshan is potentially a massive relic site, covering an area of 200,000 square meters and boasting a large number of tombs.
      Earlier excavation work was carried out over an area of 1,000 square meters and the recent work was extended by another 200 square meters. Exhumed from the tombs were bountiful stone and pottery articles along with other cultural relics, a local source said.
