An ancient tomb dating back to the Three Kingdoms period (208-280 A.D.) was unearthed recently in Longyou County, east China's Zhejiang Province.

The especially large tomb has a 14.7-meter-long grave pit and its tomb chamber, built with bricks, has a length of 12.4 meters.

Although the tomb had been raided right after the owner of the tomb was buried, there were still some articles made of pottery unearthed. Hence, the tomb has a great academic interest, according to experts.

Judging from these unearthed relics, the tomb can be traced back to the Three Kingdoms period.
