Thousand-year-old bronze relics brought home from Japan
A set of eight bronze utensils belonging to Chinese cultural heritage have been brought home from Japan following five months of pursuit by authorities, the National Cultural Heritage Administration announced Tuesday.
They are among the most-valued relics sets that have been successfully sought and brought back to China in recent years after their illegal trade on the international market was stopped, according to authorities.
