A stone bridge dating back to the Ming dynasty has been discovered after water levels plunged at China s largest freshwater lake, a Beijing newspaper reported Friday.
The remains of the 2,930-metre-long bridge, made entirely of granite and dating back nearly 400 years, appeared at Poyang lake in the central province of Jiangxi, the Beijing News reported. The lake, which has been as large as 4,500 square kilometres in the past, has been drying up in recent years due to a combination of low rainfall and the impact of the Three Gorges Dam, experts say.
