Far from the clammer of tourists on bicycles, in another part of China, archaeologists are deeply engaged. A burial pit bearing the remains of people who lived more than two-thousand-five-hundred years ago, has been discovered in Jing'an County, in Eastern China's Jiangxi Province. The site is the largest of its kind ever found in China.

The burial site containing 47 coffins in three ranks is cause for considerable excitement among archaeologists.
