ARCHAEOLOGY FUN FACTS: TERRACOTTA ARMY
Have you ever been curious about the Terracotta Army? Did you know there is something dangerous about this place?! ⛏
Transcript: “The Terracotta Army, discovered in the Shaanxi province, China in 1974, is probably the most elaborate funerary art ever uncovered. Comprised of over 8,000 life sized detailed soldiers as well as other figures, the army was sculpted to accompany the first Qin emperor into the afterlife. The Terracotta Army is a part of a 98-square-kilometer mausoleum believed to be a replica of the city, though no one has entered the entire necropolis due to concerns over preservation and booby traps."
