New Ancient State Discovered in China
Archaeologists have uncovered two large tombs of rulers of an ancient state dating back almost 3,000 years - a state which, according to scholars, has never been accounted for in recorded history. The identities of the rulers were Pengbo and his wife. The name of the ancient state, Peng, was determined from the decipherment of inscriptions on bronzeware that was excavated from the tombs. The couple were buried in the tombs along with bronzeware, jade and carriages.
