Three sets of 3000 year old coffins were found in China’s central Henan province yesterday. The coffins are one of the greatest historical finds in decades. Excavations on the site have determined that it is a prominent family burial site from the Shang Dynasty.
The coffins were taken to a museum in Anyang city for more study. According to the Xinhua news agency, it is very rare to find such well-preserved coffins from the Shang Dynasty.
