The Yue State burial complex, near Hongshan in Jiangsu province, comprises almost 100 earth-mound burials, many now excavated from 2003-5. The Hongshan site is particularly significant for the study of the ritual and music of the Spring & Autumn period Yue State ; for the origins of celadon; and for techniques of jade micro-carving.
