The work on the excavation of the Marquis of Haihun tomb in Jiangxi province has concluded after five arduous years, and the archeological achievements are now on display at the Jiangxi Provincial Museum.
More than 10,000 precious relics have been unearthed during the excavation, including bronze, gold, silver and jade wares, bamboo slips and inscribed wooden tablets, and 992 pieces out of them grace the museum.
It is the third time that the Haihunhou (Marquis of Haihun) discoveries are on display, following the temporary exhibitions in Jiangxi Provincial Museum and Beijing Capital Museum last year. But the exhibition this time is the biggest, with the most complete display and most relics on show.
According to the deputy curator of the museum Li Ronghua, to better showcase the archeological results, the exhibition will remain permanently open to the public.
