About this place

The tombs followed a mixture of Western Han Dynasty and Chu burial practices.
The tombs were made of large cypress planks.
The outside of the tombs were layered with white clay and charcoal; white clay layering was a practice that originated with Chu burials, while charcoal layering was a practice that was followed during the early western Han Dynasty in the Changsha area.
The tombs contained nested lacquered coffins, a Chu burial custom.

The tombs also followed the burial practices dictated by Emperor Wen of Han, containing no jade or precious metals.
