The Western Han Dynasty (206 BC-25 AD), during which the ancient Silk Road began construction, is one of the most prosperous periods in China's history. The greatest testament to its prosperity is none other than the cemetery of the Marquis of Haihun, the deposed Emperor Liu He.

Archaeological activities at the cemetery, located near Nanchang, capital of Jiangxi, started in 2011. More than 10,000 cultural relics, including gold, bronze and jade artifacts, have been unearthed so far. Now you can embark on a virtual tour arranged by the Jiangxi Provincial Museum to appreciate 922 artifacts excavated from the royal cemetery.
