The Terracotta Warriors, Xian


Xi'an Trips

In 1974, a group of peasants unearthed one of the biggest archaeological discoveries of the 20th century. Imagine their surprise when, instead of finding an underground lake, they uncovered over 8000 life-sized terracotta warriors. Beautifully crafted with astonishing attention to detail the soldiers had been lying there for over 2000 years, guarding the tomb of the first Chinese Emperor in the ancient city of Xi’an.
