Ancient Frescos Found in Inner Mongolia

Archaeologists have recently found precious frescos after unearthing two ancient tombs in Ih Ju league, southwestern part of north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.

The frescos, completed during the Han Dynasty (BC 206-AC 220), are located at Uxin banner of Ih Ju league. The tomb owners were supposed to be junior officials at that time.

Even though the tombs have been robbed, there still remain exquisite frescos with high artistic drawings on the walls.

Experts have found the mural pictures to be vivid portraits of horses, cattle, sheep and dancers, which are quite rare and helpful for related research.
