Chinese experts restore 1,400-year-old crown

Chinese archeologists have restored a 1,400-year-old royal crown, which belonged to the wife of Yang Guang, or Emperor Yang of Sui, the second and last monarch of the short-lived Sui Dynasty (581-618).

The crown was unearthed in the tomb of the queen, known as Empress Xiao, in 2012 in Yangzhou, eastern China’s Jiangsu Province.

It is the oldest official crown of a queen ever found in China.
