While digging the foundation for a new shopping centre in 1983, workers uncovered a tomb containing some of the richest burial objects ever seen. Most remarkable of all was a jade suit – the kind only bestowed upon Han Emperors. There was no historical record of an Emperor entitled to such a burial, so who was this man and what was the kingdom he ruled over?

Its treasures helped reveal the story of a land that was once seen as primitive and barbaric, but which was transformed into a thriving economy.
