The Terracotta Warriors Museum

The Kneeling Archer

Bronze Chariots and Horses

Farmers digging a well outside the city of Xi'an, China, in 1974 struck upon one of the greatest archaeological discoveries in the world.

This terra-cotta army, as it is known,

is part of an elaborate mausoleum created to accompany the first emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang, 

into the afterlife.
