A two-story tomb from the Jin Dynasty has been unearthed in Changzhi, China.

“Two-story tombs from the Jin Dynasty have rarely been unearthed, but we have seen this type of tomb on murals in other tombs,” said Yang.

He said the tomb was discovered when a local plant was building a workshop, and the institute carried out an emergent excavation in October after receiving the report of the finding.

The 17-chamber tomb features an arched top, windows and cornice brackets, and is furnished with living necessities, such as a well, a stone mill, pots and ceramic items.
