The State Administration of Cultural Heritage (SACH) officially approved plans to turn the 2,000-year-old Tomb of the Marquis of Haihun site in East China's Jiangxi Province into a national-level archaeological park, the site's management office announced in a statement on Sunday.
The site and 31 other archaeological sites nationwide were listed as national-level archaeological park projects approved by SACH on Saturday in Cixi, East China's Zhejiang Province.
National-level archaeological parks, which include research and education facilities as well as visitor areas, are considered important parts of government efforts to showcase and educate the public about the country's key archaeological finds.
Divided into six zones, the Tomb of the Marquis of Haihun archaeological park will cover an estimated area of 12.46 square kilometers, according to the site's management office.
The 2015 excavation of the Tomb of the Marquis of Haihun was considered the biggest archaeological event of that year in China.
More than 100,000 relics have been unearthed at the site so far.
