A dead emperor guarded by his army for 2,000 years… One day in 1974, a group of farmers in rural China found a life-size clay statue of a man’s head buried deep in a field. When government archaeologists inspected the area, they discovered that beneath the ground were more than eight thousand life-size clay soldiers, each one with a unique face. In nearby chambers, they unearthed clay horses, carefully preserved swords, bronze statues, and other astonishing things. Where did these treasures come from? And why were they buried? Slowly the story revealed itself. It centered around Qin Shi Huangdi, the first emperor of China, who died in 210 B.C.. For forty years leading up to his death, thousands of artists from across China had sculpted an enormous city where he would be buried, guarded and protected by thousands of clay soldiers. This city remained hidden for over two thousand years. This important archaeological find offers amazing insight into the civilization of ancient China.

Lintong was the burial ground of Emperor Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor to unify China in a series of bloody wars from 246 BC to 221 BC. Subsequently he laid the groundwork, on strictly Confucian principles, for the following government of China, even though his own dynasty barely outlasted his death in 210 BC. About 700,000 convicts worked in the tomb for 38 years, even after the Emperor's death. The aim was to build a complete army of warriors and horses in terracotta to serve the Emperor in the underworld after his death.
