Terracotta warriors discovered

12 June 2012 by Luke McCormick

Archeologists in China have unearthed more than a hundred terracotta warriors that have been buried for centuries.

The life-sized figures were excavated close to the site of the Qin Emperor's mausoleum near the Chinese city of Xian over the course of three years. Archeologists also discovered pottery horses, parts of chariots, weapons and tools.

"The most significant discovery this time around is that the relics that were found were well-preserved and colourfully painted," the deputy head of the museum's archaeology department, told AFP.
