Detection of a possible bomb disrupted work at a construction site in Guanghan, Chengdu city of Southwest China's Sichuan province last Saturday. It later turned out that the suspicious object was a pot containing ancient Song Dynasty (960-1279) chinaware.

According to reports by Chengdu Economic Daily, a construction team excavated an iron jar-like object when digging a ditch in Xiangyang township.

For fear of a possible undetonated bomb, the workers stopped operations and called the police.
