The tomb of ancient playwright Tang Xianzu has been discovered in Jiangxi province, archaeologists announced on Monday. A cluster of tombs was discovered in Fuzhou at the end of last year, after the buildings of a plant built in the 1950s were leveled.

According to Xu Changqing, head of the Jiangxi Provincial Cultural Relics and Archaeology Research Institute, a total of 42 tombs were found, including 40 from the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644).

Archaeologists also found six epitaphs, including several believed to be written by Tang himself.
