Today’s topic is something different but still fun. It also one that is in Asia and is a little more known. This tomb is the home of the Terracotta Warriors. This tomb is found in Shaanxi, China.
The tomb is for the first emperor of China. He is important for many reasons. He was the reason China became unified. He also started building the Great Wall. He was also bugie enough that he could prepare for death by creating this huge tomb and putting lots of treasures in it, only to be found 2100 years later.
With the warriors they found: of bronze, iron, bronze and leather bridles, objects made of silk, linen, jade, and bone, and such weapons as bows and arrows, spears, and swords, cast from an unusual 13-element alloy, which are still shiny and sharp today. They had also found clay figures. The tomb itself has never been excavated, and was built by many people over 36 years. This site is seen as a World Heritage Site, which means it is protected. There is also other buried emperors near this one.
I feel like there is just so much to learn about burials because they tell us a lot of what they used, the migration routes if they moved around, and so much more. So when getting a good look at burials they need to be looked at fully.
