Xi'an - Buried Terra Cotta Army

Xi'an, Warriors, terra cotta, army, China
There is a full museum for these warriors buried at Xi'an, in Central China, now excavated and a wonder. See, for the Museum of Qin Terra Cotta Warriors and Horses.
Those in the museum are only some of the 8000 originally buried in about 200 BC, before the tomb of Emperor Qinshihuang, to protect him after death.
His story is told at, "Sentinels of a Death-Defying Emperor."

Xi'an is a major city, and a cultural center. See
