110 Ancient Terracotta Warriors Surfaces From China
110 new life-size figures of ancient Chinese warriors were recently discovered by a group of Chinese archaeologists in Xi’an city. Along with these amazing terracotta warriors, the archaeologist have found some other 12 pottery horses, parts of chariots, weapons and tools. They were said to be buried under there for centuries before uncovering them now.
“The… excavation on the 200-square-metre (2,152-square-feet) site has found a total of 110 terracotta figurines,” Shen Maosheng from the Qin Shihuang Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum told AFP.
This is the second biggest discovery China made after finding out the true length of the Great Wall of China to be much longer than expected. New figures now states The Great Wall of China to be 21,196 kilometres (13,170 miles) long, which shows it to be much larger than the 2009 figure of 8,851 kilometres.
