Recently, an excavation in the village of Xizhu in Luoyang, Henan province drew to a close. Archeologists said that a mausoleum found at the site may date back to the Cao Wei period in the Eastern Han Dynasty, over 1,000 years ago. Cao Wei was one of the three major states that competed for supremacy over China in the Three Kingdoms period.

The grave is approximately 52 meters long and 12 meters deep. More than 400 relics were unearthed from the site, including pottery, ironware, copper, wood, as well as a few pieces of lacquer and jade.
