The Zun was excavated at the Fuhao tomb of the Yin ruins. Fuhao was the wife of King Wuding of the Shang Dynasty. When her tomb was excavated in 1976, as many as 468 pieces of bronzeware were discovered. They give convincing evidence of the highly developed bronze civilization of the Shang Dynasty.
