The Terracotta Army is regarded as one of the greatest discoveries of the 20th century! Discovered in 1974 by farmers digging a well, this enormous group of 8000 sculptures amazed the world. The excavation uncovered soldiers, horses, and carriages. This incredible army was constructed to accompany the tomb of China’s First Emperor – Qin Shihuang (259-210BC) as an afterlife guard. The army laid underground for more than 2000 years until its discovery and is now considered one of the greatest archaeological sites in the world. The find was praised as the Eighth Wonder of the World and became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.
