Marquis Yi of Zeng
One of the main attractions at the Wuhan Museum is a collection of artifacts from the Tomb of the Marquis Yi of Zeng. This tomb was discovered in 1977. The Marquis Yi lived during what is known as The Warring States Period (around 433 BCE). His tomb contained his coffin, bronze serving dishes, and a complete set of 65 bronze bells (bianzhong).
