"The most spectacular excavation of modern archeology, the discovery of the tomb of the first Emperor of China, aroused an excitement that even exceeded the extraordinary sensation caused by Tutankhamen. the site on Mount Li in the northern province of Shensi was unearthed in 1974, revealing rows upon rows of over 7,000 life-size terracotta infantry, crossbowmen, chariots and cavalry, an army guarding the First Emperor's tomb in strict battle formation."
