The amazing Terracotta Warriors and Xi’An 西安

In a chance discovery, an entire army of terracotta warriors was found.

The first emperor of China had them created and buried with him, to protect him in the afterlife. Construction of this mausoleum began in 246 BC and is believed to have taken about 700,000 workers and craftsmen 38 years to complete.
