As China’s city of Shanghai has rapidly developed over the last fifty years, more than 400 Ming dynasty era tombs have been excavated from more than 300 individual sites. This volume is an attempt to document the most important findings. Divided into six chapters, the topics discussed are:

  • Tombs with detailed records
  • Tombs without records
  • Collected epitaphs
  • Structural analysis
  • Study of funerary objects
  • Introduction to the tomb occupants

    A full section of color photographs of the objects unearthed including jade, bronzes, pottery, textiles and more is also included, as well as progressive images from the sites as they were excavated.
