The protected site, on the eastern slope of Da Gong mountain, had been sealed off by the Guangzhou Archaeology Research Centre, with warning signs posted and red lines marking the protected area.
It was fine when archaeologists left on Friday but had been torn up by the time they returned on Saturday.
“Yesterday we were still conducting archaeological excavations, but all five tombs were gone this morning,” said an archaeologist quoted by Southern Metropolis Daily yesterday.
