Combination photo taken on June 22, 2013 shows the archeological site of an ancient tomb in Fangshan District of Beijing, capital of China. A gravestone excavated from the tomb confirmed that the tomb was the final resting place of Liu Ji, a regional military governor of the Tang Dynasty (618-907), and his wife. Archaeologists have started a salvage excavation of the tumulus since August 2012, after it was accidentally discovered at a local construction site. Valuable cultural relics, including an exquisite stone coffin bed, were discovered. (Xinhua/Luo Xiaoguang)
