A lacquered "dragon bed" dating back some 2,500 years has been restored by archaeologists in southwest China after a 17-year effort, the Chengdu Cultural Relics and Archaeology Research Institute said on Monday.

The bed was unearthed in 2000 from an ancient king’ tomb complex discovered in Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan Province.

It is “the oldest and the best-preserved lacquered bed ever unearthed in China,” said Yang Tao, an assistant researcher of the institute.
