Tomb of The Marquis of Zeng

In Wuhan, at the Hubei Provinicial Museum, is one of the best museum exhibits that I have ever seen.  On display are artifacts excavated from the tomb of rhe Marquis of Zeng.  These artifacts, buried with this nobleman, tell a rather detailed story of life in feudal China in 400 BCE.

There were concubines, musical instruments, wine refrigerators, and weapons.  The Marquis lived a life of privilege, power, and peril. His concubines were treated as his possessions rather than as people.
