YEJIASHAN, CHINA—More than 100 tombs from the early Western Zhou Dynasty have been uncovered in central China’s Hubei Province. One of the largest of the approximately 3,000-year-old tombs has yielded sets of bronze ware for ritual and table use. In particular, a bronze pot painted red with patterns is thought to be the first of its kind to be found from this period. Pottery and lacquered artifacts have also been recovered.
