In 1974 a group of farmers stumbled across one of the world’s greatest archaeological finds whilst digging a well. Over 40 years later, a huge subterranean necropolis covering an area of 22-square-miles has been unveiled, with 16 pits and thousands of figures, all surrounding the huge burial mound. All this creates a representation of the court of Qin Shi Huang, the emperor who united the warring factions and bought about what is pretty much the China we know today.

What the farmers revealed that day was just one section of a huge terracotta army, created to protect Qin Shi Huang in the afterlife. Each warrior is exquisite, with a unique facial expression, hair styles, their height determined by their rank, their own weapons, all standing in battle formation alongside horses and chariots. You can visit the original three pits to gaze over the sentinel rows and learn more about the more recent excavations that have been taking place.
