City ruins by Korean border may date to Han Dynasty (Xinhua)

Chinese archaeologists have discovered ruins of an ancient city that may date back to the Han Dynasty (202 B.C.-220 A.D.) and legions of tombs of the ancient Koguryo kingdom.
The ruins were found in a major reservoir on the border shared by China and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK). The tombs were found 20 kilometers away.

Hadrian, If you are going to misbehave, than you are not going to be able to sit beside me on the plane to China, instead, you will have to sit in front of me while I tease or torture you...hehe
