Neolithic jade objects unearthed in China

5,000 year old jade objects have been unearthed in tombs in China’s Zhejiang province.

Fang Xiangming, research of Zhejiang Archaeology Research Institute said, “It’s rare to find such a large and well-preserved tomb. The depth of the NO.5 tomb is 1.1 meters. It’s the deepest tomb found in the Jiaxing area. It’s a big discovery judging by the tomb’s size and the rich variety of the antiques found in it.”

A piece of jade “Yue”, a kind of ancient weapon in China, reveals the noble identity of tomb number one’s owner. He may have been the head of a tribe whose members were under his control.
