Photo taken on Nov. 7, 2018 shows the excavation site of a Western Han Dynasty (202 BC to AD 8) tomb in Luoyang, central China's Henan Province. Archaeologists on Tuesday poured liquid out of a bronze pot unearthed from the tomb into a measuring glass, giving off an aroma of rich wine. A large number of color-painted clay pots and bronze artifacts were unearthed from the tomb, which covers 210 square meters. The remains of the tomb occupant were well preserved. The bronze pot containing the liquid is one of the two big bronze items unearthed from the tomb. The other is a lamp in the shape of a wild goose, which was the first of its kind found in Luoyang, capital of 13 dynasties with a history of 3,000 years. (Xinhua/Li An)
