New Terracotta Warriors found in China (VIDEO)

New Terracotta Warriors found in China (VIDEO) | Year Seven Ancient History: China & Egypt | Scoop.it
Nearly 120 new Terracotta Warriors and about 30 statues of entertainers have been discovered at Chinese Emperor Qin Shihuang's mausoleum.

 

Excellent BBC footage of the mausoleum of the great Chinese Emperor Qin Shihuang. 700 people working 38 years to construct this mausoleum for the man who unified China, built the Great Wall, burned all books except those about farming because he believed knowledge is what you know.  Afterwards when he sought wisdom, he discovered it was not to be found. He is said to have feared death more than any foe and thus too frightened to embark on a journey into the underworld without an army, spent his time searching for the elixir of life. If wisdom is the elixir of life, it seems to have eluded him for wisdom is what you do with what you know.
