113 urn tombs unearthed in north China

113 urn tombs have been excavated in the city of Huanghua, dating back to more than 2,000 years. Urn burial was usually reserved for children, but sometimes adults were also buried in this way.
Urn burial in China meant the whole body put into two or three urns. The urns were strapped together to contain the body and one of them usually had a hole in the bottom, believed to give the deceased a chance of rebirth.
