Mysterious Pyramid of Zhengzhou

On March 2017, a mysterious pyramid-shaped tomb has been uncovered by archaeologists under a construction site in China. The coffin chamber alongside a similar cylinder-shaped coffin was discovered in Zhengzhou, Henan Province. Archaeologists were left scratching their heads after discovering it, along with another cylinder shaped tomb in what they believe is a burial site. Chinese media have nicknamed it the “pyramid of Zhengzhou”, though at six feet tall it is unlikely to draw as many tourists as the real things in Egypt.

It’s possible that the chamber, stretching 30 metres long and 8 metres across, experts believe the chamber is a burial site, and could hail from the Han Dynasty (202 BC – 220 AD), which is widely regarded as China’s golden age.

Who was buried inside the mausoleum, as well as the reason why it was built in the shaped of a pyramid, are also under investigation. The area used to be a village, reports local media, but work was underway to build a new residential compound when the discovery was made.
