Lei Cheng Uk Han Tomb (Lei Cheng Uk Estate, Sham Shui Po)

This ancient brick tomb was discovered in 1955 when workmen were levelling a hill slope to make way for the present Lei Cheng Uk Estate. A total of 58 pottery and bronze objects were found inside the tomb. Available evidence based on the design of the tomb and the forms of burial objects suggests that it was built during the Eastern Han Dynasty (A.D.25-220). The site is now the Lei Cheng Uk Han Tomb Museum.

Lei Cheng Uk Han Tomb was declared a monument in 1988.
