A key component to the plotline is the role of the tombs that house the Terra Cotta warriors in Shaanxi, China. For example, they let us know which features and sections are most popular. The burial chambers are empty, and body parts lie strewn in the doorways along with a scattering of pearls and pieces of gold. The terra-cotta army, as it is known, is part of an elaborate mausoleum created to accompany the first emperor of China into the afterlife, according to archaeologists. I enjoyed this book immensely. Sad as it may seem, that move would have made sense to someone whose claim to the throne was shaky.

Though as I stated before in my review, with the death of Thorvaldsen I lost the drive, it takes me too many days to finish the book. But this was just the hanger that tells the story of China. The tomb chamber itself is 80 meters long east to west, 50 meters north to south, and is about 15 meters high. The museum's claim to fame is its location.

Archaeologists estimate the pits may contain as many as 8, figures, but the total may never be known. We use this information to create a better experience for all users. The Second Emperor said: "It would be inappropriate for the concubines of the late emperor who have no sons to be out free", ordered that they should accompany the dead, and a great many died. Could he really have gotten all the details right?
