Tombs of the Liao Dynasty:
Treasures from the afterlife
The Liao were a powerful dynasty that ruled over a large part of East Asia from 907 to 1125. Led by the great Khan, Yelii Aboaji, the dynasty was founded by the Khitan, an ancient nomadic group which had become a strong united force by the dawn of the tenth century. Little trace of the Liao has endured historically; their written language has been lost and very few relics have survived. Consequently, the Liao have been neglected and misunderstood by historians for centuries, and considered as a minor era in the history of China.
