The Tomb of Han Farong

In 2011 Chinese archaeologists in the city of Datong uncovered the tomb of a noble woman. It dates to around 1,500 years ago.

The epitaph reads, Han Farong, the wife of Magistrate Cui Zhen.

The most remarkable finds were these exquisite earrings.

And this necklace of 5,000 beads, which must have been fun to reconstruct.
