Lay graves from the Song-Yuan, especially in the south, have produced quite a number of Daoist figurines and a wide range of Lingbao-related tomb-anchoring texts carved on stone. Graves of professional Daoists have been found in both north and south, but their Daoist features are far more obvious in the south than in the north. Other features of the period are the development of graves for the living and of the mutual interpenetration of Daoism and geomancy.
