Archaeologists made an astonishing discovery late last year when they unearthed what was thought to be 2,000-year-old wine from a Western Han Dynasty tomb; but after months of testing, scientists now believe that the liquid could be an “Elixir of Immortality.”
Scientists were able to recover the 3.5 liter liquid from the tomb of a royal family in October. Experts first suggested that the liquid inside it could be wine as it gave off an alcohol aroma.
Police have arrested the culprits behind the theft of the largest meteorite to ever land in the southwestern region of Guanxi, China, an artifact that is deemed to be Beilai village’s most prized possession where it has remained for hundreds of years.
The incident occurred on Jan. 27 when the 2 ton meteorite measuring 120 cm (47.2 inches) long and 65 cm (25.5 inches) wide vanished from the concrete block it was anchored to.
