Archaeologists have excavated a cluster of more than 80 tombs from the West Han Dyanasty (206 B.C. – 24 A.D.) in northern China.

The tombs, located in Beidazhao Qiandong village of Nanhe County, 150 km south of the provincial capital of Shijiazhuang, are believed to be from the middle and late West Han Dynasty (206 BC- 24 AD) and middle Tang Dynasty (618-907), archaeologist Li Lianshen was quoted as saying by state-run Xinhua news agency.

Archaeologists have discovered 73 tombs altogether since the excavation started in May and more than 4,000 square meters of land have been combed through, Li said.
