It’s like a movie scene. Tthe Lei Cheng Uk Han Tomb in Sham Shui Po  was accidentally discovered during work on a construction project. Believed to have been built during the Eastern Han dynasty (AD25-200), the brick tomb was probably made for a Chinese officer. Sequestered within were 58 pieces of pottery and bronze, along with bodily remains. The tomb has since been declared a monument, and closed off to ensure its preservation. But the public can still view it from the site’s entrance. An exhibition hall was also opened next door, and showcases the excavated relics, as well as documents, photos and other miscellany detailing the tomb’s discovery.
