4/02/10: Cao Cao’s Tomb Discovered

Post by Qu Hui » Fri Apr 02, 2010 6:32 pm

In December 2009, a tomb thought to be Cao Cao’s was discovered in Henan Province. Since then, archaeologists have confirmed that it indeed Cao Cao’s tomb due to tablets bearing inscriptions identifying the tomb as belonging to “King Wu of Wei,” which was Cao Cao’s title when he died in AD 220. Contents of the tomb included weapons, armor, pottery and other articles, which are thought to be the warlord’s everyday belongings and are in accordance with his final wishes that he be buried simply and without treasures.
