Dozens of ancient stone grenades found in first-of-its-kind discovery of Great Wall of China weapons

Archaeologists in China unearthed earlier this month dozens of ancient stone grenades in what they believe was a weapons storehouse along the Great Wall of China, the first such facility discovered at the wall.

The discovery of 59 stone grenades was made in the western area of the Badaling section of the Great Wall, which is the most visited section and lies about 80km northwest of downtown Beijing.

It is the first time a weapons storehouse has been discovered along the Great Wall, according to Shang Heng, a Beijing Institute of Archaeology researcher, in an interview with Xinhua.
