Located on the Silk Road, Guyuan County in Northwest China's Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region used to be an important town along the trade route. Many cultural relics have been discovered there, and now archeologists have found something new.
Red and white marks have been found on the walls of a large tomb from the Tang Dynasty. Archeologists believe they're part of murals hidden inside the walls. The marks were found during the excavation of a more than one-thousand year-old tomb.
This is the first time that murals on such a large scale have ever been found in Ningxia. The murals and the tomb will provide valuable clues for research on the history, economy, culture and religions of the Tang Dynasty.
