Song Dynasty tomb tile used as road fill

Tile for a child's tomb in Northern China. Woman is oldest female relative. Tomb destroyed during Cultural Revolution. Tile used as road fill. People refused to travel on road. People went through road rubble and saved what they could.
Told to me by someone who was there and said he participated. I cannot vouch for it.
