Six pieces of celadon porcelain made in China were found in a wooden coffin in a tomb in the Yoshimori ruins at the town of Nijo, Fukuoka Prefecture, that dates back to the mid-13th century, local education officials said.

The officials said Wednesday that the find is interesting because such porcelain was considered precious at the time, and it is rare for as many as six pieces, including plates, to be used in a single burial offering.
