Total 26 tombs from the Han dynasty through the Qing dynasty, 13 of which were from the Han, were unearthed from the archaeological site located in Xiaohuangcun, Baogong, Feidong, Anhui Province. The shaft earthen tomb M5 dating back to the Western Han is much more prominent in scale and prestige than the other Han tombs from this site. Its construction way is rarely seen in the other Han earthen tombs unearthed from the same area. M5 is unearthed with a broad range of burial objects including items made from pottery, bronze, iron, jade, stone and wood. Most of the pottery wares are shaped in jars and pots,which suggests that the tomb was built in the late period of Western Han and that the funeral custom was in decent accordance with the local cultural traditions.
