    About this book

The tumulus of Qin Shi Huang containing terra-cotta warriors in armor and horses consists of the No.1, No.2 and No.3 pit. The huge grave complex lay in the east of the actual tomb of the emperor. Since 1 974 explorations and trial content of the pits had been obtained. Its scale is magnificent; it has been an area of over 2.000 square meters. It forms a rich treasure house of China's cultural relics or historical monuments. Twenty wooden war chariots, more than a thousand life-size terra-cotta warriors in armor and horses, plus 10.000 odd bronze weapons had been unearthed during the trial excavation. Judging from what had been revealed so far there are 100 odd war chariots, 600 odd clay horses and over 7.000 terra-cotta warriors, and a massive quantity of real weaponry.
