Funerary objects unearthed totalled over 260 pieces, including spade-shaped coins, bronze belt hooks, brass bells, tripods, clay workshops, jars, pots, cups and bowls, reports People’s Daily Online.
The burial form of these tombs primarily fell under the unique burial customs of the Qin people with the skeletons of the dead maintaining the fetal position.
Objects buried with the dead were few with only a small number of clay tripods, jars, stemmed bowls and plates found in certain graves.
During the western Han period, there were two types of tombs: earth-shaft graves and brick-chambered graves.
