More than 100 New Terracotta Warriors of Qin Dynasty Unearthed in China

More than 100 life-size terracotta warriors have added to the Terracotta Army of China’s Qin Dynasty as archaeologists announced on Monday about the new statues that have been excavated on the outskirts of Xi’an province in China.

The new terracotta warriors, about 110, were unearthed at an excavation site inside the No1 pit of the Museum of Qin Terracotta Warriors and Horses, which is actually the mausoleum of Qin Dynasty’s Qin Shi Huang (221-210 BC), the first emperor of China.
