And there was much rejoycing amongst Koei fans

I don't think i'm the only person on my friends list who would be at least a little excited to hear that the discovery of Cao Cao's tomb has just been announced :)

On the downside it wasn't discovered as part of an archaeological dig, it was found by some random kiln workers and an unknown (or at least unstated so far) amount of tomb robbing took place before the authorities got wise.

Despite the just being announced bit there's actually been an official dig going on since december of last year. It doesn't actually say when the kiln workers found it though (and thus how long the looting was going on) and i don't have time to dig around for other sources right now.

(Hey, it's a nice change from the TSA insanity that's dominating the rest of the news currently, right?)
