Archaeologists conducting research at the tomb of a Chinese Emperor who died thousands of years ago have just found something incredibly valuable inside it.

According to Daily Mail, researchers digging at the royal tombs of the Marquis of Haihun State of the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC-AD 24) have found large quantities of gold inside it. The cemetery contains eight tombs as well as a chariot burial site, and in the five years it has been studied, it has produced Wuzhu bronze coins, jade and thousands of other gold, bronze and iron items.
