Xian - The Terracotta Warriors 10

The 1974 discovery of the Terracotta warriors is considered to be one of the great archaeological discoveries of the 20th century. However, Chinese authorities have recognized how fragile the site is and have taken time and care in reconstructing figures. It is estimated that forty more years work remains before the figures are all excavated. In the meantime, the tomb of the Emperor remains intact and undisturbed a short distance away. .
