The tombs are divided into east and west groups. The archeological team has been excavating them for more than a month, and it will take another month to finish the job. /VCG Photo

In addition to skeletons, funerary objects like jars can be seen in the tombs. According to a staff member of the Beijing Antiquities Authority, no special antiques have been found so far, and the masters of the tombs were probably ordinary citizens. /VCG Photo

It was not strange to find tombs in the area, since it was far away from the city center during the Qing Dynasty, according to the staffer. /VCG Photo
