The site has yielded the most complex tomb structures and the largest number of artefacts from any Bohai kingdom grave complex. The Bohai kingdom was a Korean kingdom that flourished at the time of the Tang dynasty. Of most note amongst the excavated artefacts were large numbers of small metal objects, small examples of jewellery and beads and extensive amounts of everyday objects. A large and very detailed report. Two page English summary. Main text in Chinese.
