Xian

Location: Xian, China

Photographs of the Terracotta warriors
Little Wild Goose Pagoda

So many are yet undiscovered

Panoramic view of the main pit, only 8000 so far restored

Detail of the main pit

The kneeling archer, every warrior has his own expression and personality

The scale of the problem, the warriors were smashed in rebellions against the emperor. The task of piecing the jigsaw is a testament to the skill of the restorers

Detail with the horses, note the different hairstyles of the warriors denoting rank

The ancient city wall of Xian

One of the bronze chariots guarding the entrance to the tomb of the Emperor Qin Shi Huang

Mr Yang was signing books- he was the peasant farmer, who in the 1970s, discovered the warriors when he was digging a well on his land
