There are 11 tombs from the Han Dynasty, and 13 tombs from the Jin and Southern Dynasties (266 A.D.- 589 A.D.), both relatively large in number and scale, said Yi Xibin, deputy head of the Guangzhou Municipal Institute of Cultural Heritage and Archaeology.


The unearthed items include pottery objects, bronze ware, ironware and beadwork. They offer rich materials for studying the historical and geographical changes in Guangzhou, Yi said.
