More than 120 renowned Chinese archaeologists agreed that an ancient tomb belonged to Cao Cao, a cunning general and ruler who lived some 1,800 years ago.
"After discussions about excavated items from the tomb, a consensus has been reached that it belongs to Cao Cao," Bai Yunxiang, deputy director of the Institute of Archaeology of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS), told a symposium.
Cao Cao, a legendary warlord of the Three Kingdoms period (220-280) when China had three separate rulers, has been portrayed as a cruel tyrant, but also a cunning military strategist and poet.
China.org.cn said the State Administration of Cultural Heritage declared in June that Cao Cao’s tomb was one of the 10 top archaeological findings in China in 2009.
