Over 10,000 items from a gold and silver treasure dating back to the Ming Dynasty 300 years ago have been discovered at the bottom of a river in China.
The monumental trove, which had been sitting at the bottom of a river in southwest China’s Sichuan Province for over 300 years, was unearthed by archaeologists.
A large number of gold, silver, and bronze coins were among some of the items recovered at the junction of the Minjiang and Jinjiang rivers about 50 kilometers (31 miles) south of Chengdu, the archeologists said on Monday.
