Ancient zongzi from Northern Song Dynasty tells stories about past


Among the collections of the Nanling County Museum in east China's Anhui Province, there is an ancient zongzi of special significance. Zongzi is a traditional delicacy that the Chinese people eat on the Dragon Boat Festival, which falls on June 10 this year. According to researchers at the museum, this zongzi was unearthed at a local village from a tomb dating back to the Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127). It is about seven centimeters long and weighs 10 grams. It is complete and the way it was wrapped is the same as it done nowadays in Nanling.
