A cluster of graves dating from Ming Dynasty, which have been found to be a couple joint burials, was discovered in Nanling County, Anhui Providence on March 20th.

When the reporter arrived in Nanling, the tombs had already been unearthed. Two machine diggers are still currently working beside the graves. The ancient tombs are about 2.5 meters long, 1.5 meters wide and 2 meters deep. Some constructions of bricks can be seen near the excavated tombs. Dozens of villagers were standing and discussing around the tombs.
