Grave robber given the death sentence

China can not be accused of taking the digging up of historical artifacts from burials lightly. It has always been culturally important to respect the graves of the dead as many still believe the ancestors pass judgment on their families. China has many ancient tombs some containing valuable ornaments and jewelry, particularly in northern China.
