dig Issue Summary
China (November / December 2003)
Ever wonder what survives in ancient sealed tombs, and why? Well, join us on site in China to find out why silk is a great find. Learn why the Three Gorges Dam is set to submerge countless ancient sites and artifacts -- and what archaeologists are doing about it. Like music? Well, Marquis Xi's tomb may be for you! How about teeth? There's one find that's still puzzling the archaeologists -- no one knows why so many teeth happened to be at one site. Maybe you will have some ideas. Then, travel to a new tomb find that's setting the record straight about a drawing of a Chinese lady in Western armor. See you in China!
