Archaeologists find pyramid-shaped tomb in China
A strange, pyramid-shaped tomb has been uncovered under a construction site in Zhengzhou, Henan province, central China.

It’s possible that the chamber, stretching almost 100 feet long and 26 feet across, could hail from the Han Dynasty (202 BC-220 AD), which is widely regarded as China’s golden age.
Chinese media have dubbed the tomb the “pyramid of Zhengzhou.”
The tombs, which stand less than 6 feet tall, could provide an insight into one of the most interesting periods in China’s history.
Spanning four centuries, it was during this time that China’s economy soared and included the introduction of the Silk Road — a marketplace which connected the East to the West.
