A look at the tomb preserved of the Lei Cheng Uk Han Tomb Museum, Hong Kong.
The tomb was likely built for a Chinese officer attached to the local garrison. According to the information provided by the evidence found in the structure, it is thought that the tomb was built during the Eastern Han Dynasty (AD 25 - 220), though the Southern Dynasties period is also suggested.
In 1955 when the Hong Kong government was leveling a hill slope at the present-day Lei Cheng Uk Estate, the tomb was accidentally rediscovered, and later excavated by workers of the Public Works Department, Hong Kong, as well as members of Hong Kong University. The tomb has four chambers, with a dome vault at the centre.
The first photo shows the interior of the tomb, and the second a model of the tomb at the Hong Kong Museum of History.
