The excavation of a large-scale ancient tomb from the period of Three Kingdoms (AD 220-280) has come to an end in Xizhu village in Luoyang city, Central China's Henan province, Nov 10, 2016.

The tomb is about 52 meters in length and 12 meters in depth. More than 400 objects of pottery, ironware, bronze ware, lacquer ware, and jade articles have been unearthed.

Based on objects discovered, archaeologists deduced that the tomb must belong to someone in Cao Wei's regime during the period of Three Kingdoms but the identity of the owner is still unclear.
