Terra Cotta Warriors

 

The Terra Cotta Warriors in Xi’an were up there on my bucket list. Ancient archaeological site, with loads of history? Yes, please!

The pictures don’t really give a complete idea of how very big the site is. Three main pits, with more probably around and just under the ground. They have been excavating for more than 40 years, and are still making progress.

For an excellent short podcast about the man behind the warriors, Qin Shi Huang Di, check out the China History Podcast. The topics covered on the show are really well-researched and help you to wade into the deep river of Chinese history and culture without losing your footing too much.

A great day.
