Burial Mounds and The Bronze Age Civilization of Southeast Coastal China
The recent excavation of burial mounds (3700 B.P. - 2400 B.P.) scattered across Southeastern China has yielded important discoveries, including the mausoleum of the king of Yue (2500 B.P.), ranked as "one of the most important archaeological discoveries in China in 1998." Ancient burial mounds were closely related to the origins of the Wu and Yue cultures.
