Terracotta Warriors Archaeological Discovery:
More than 2,200 years ago, China's first emperor, Qin Shi Huang, in search of immortality and eternal power, ordered the construction of a vast underground army of 8,000 life-size terracotta warriors. For 36 years, thousands of laborers worked on this project. Each of the terra cotta soldiers has a unique and distinctive face. It is thought that real soldiers served as models. Formal excavation began in 1974 and will continue for many more years. Located in the city of XI An, China, (Xian, Xi-An) annually the site is visited by more than 2 million tourists.
