The tombs date back to the Spring and Autumn period (771-476 BC) and cover an area over 200,000 square metres. Alongside the tombs, an ancient city dating back to the Han Dynasty (202 BC-220) was also discovered. Archaeologists believe the site was home to an ancient tribe more than 2,600 years ago.
The tribe was one of the few in the region whose migration and time of perish was recorded. Experts will study the tribe to learn the history of migration of minorities in the central area of China, state- run Xinhua news agency reported.
