The Terra Cotta Warriors and Horses are the most significant archeological excavations of the 20th century. Chinese workers digging a well in 1974 made a startling discovery – thousands of life-size terracotta figures of an army prepared for battle. The soldiers are part of Shihuangdi’s tomb, located near the modern town of Xi’an, Shaanxi province in China. The excavation site is very large and only 30-40% of excavations are yet completed. Every warrior of army of as many as 8,000 life-sized is unique. The is nothing quite like this anywhere in the world.
