Now, let’s join a team of archaeologists in Shandong Province for their recently unearthed discovery. Archaeologists in Heze city found access to a secret mezzanine structure inside a Han Dynasty tomb, unveiling a silk robe.
The robe was sealed in a box made of bamboo, hidden in a concealed area in the tomb. Experts say it’s the first time ever that they have found a piece of clothing stored this way as a funeral item. Judging from the jade-ware decoration, they believe it’s a personal belonging of the tomb’s owner, the mother of West Han Dynasty’s Emperor Ai. The discovery has lent much support to the historical studies on the Han Dynasty.
