A group of Chinese archaeologists found more than 6,000 ancient tombs in South Chengdu, capital of the province of Sichuan, reported this Thursday the Research Institute of Cultural Relics and Archeology of that city.

The archaeological remains found are approximately between 650 and 2,500 years old, and range from the period of the Warring Kingdoms (between 475 and 221 BC) to the penultimate dynasty of the Asian country, the Ming, which lasted from 1368 to 1644.

«The findings are important for the study of cultural exchanges between China and the West, and also [regarding] the ancientsocial changes along the Silk Road“Said Zhuo Zhiqiang, director of the excavation team responsible for the discovery.

Zhuo recalled that not only these tombs have been found in that area, but since March 2015 remains of residential sites from the end of the Neolithic have been unearthed, as well as tens of thousands of cultural relics from different dynasties, including ceramics, bronze tableware , stoneware and coins, as well as pearls from the Pacific and Indian Oceans.

Earlier this month a old gold seal of almost 8 kilos, as well as more than 10,000 relics from the 17th century in Meishán, a Chinese town also belonging to the province of Sichuan.
