In Hunan's Zixing City 资兴市, two brick chamber tombs that date either from the Eastern Han or the Western or Eastern Jin were excavated; more than 30 artifacts were found in them. One of the tombs that probably belonged to a male had 23 artifacts, which included bronzeware, porcelain, pottery vessels, and an iron knife. One artifact of note found within was a well-preserved bronze cauldron used for cooking. This type of cauldron was a common southern cooking utensil during this period. These tombs belonged to a rich household.
