(Xinhua) -- A tomb dating back more than 1,700 years was uncovered in the city of Zixing, central China's Hunan Province, according to the local institute of cultural relics and archaeology.

The brick-chambered tomb is 7.36 meters long. It consists of a passage, a front chamber and a rear chamber. More than 20 pieces of relics including celadon jars and ancient coins have been unearthed in the tomb.

Based on a clear chronology carved on the brick, experts believe the tomb was built in the Western Jin Dynasty (265-316).

"As the ancient tomb is well-preserved, the unearthed relics are of high historical value for the study of the customs at that time," said Chen Gang, an archaeological expert in Zixing.
