The Qin government was very bureaucratic, and was administrated by a group of ranked
officials, all serving the First Emperor. The Qin practiced the teachings of the Han Feizi(a Chinese philosopher who developed the skill of Legalism). Allowing Qin to control all of his territories. All normal teachings were standardized, from measurements to language. Zheng and his advisers introduced new laws and practices, which ended feudalism in China. Replacing it with a centralized, bureaucratic government. This allowed the military and government to thrive and transformed society.
Q4: What did Shi Huangdi have built near the end of his life?
Qin built a terracotta army to protect him in the afterlife. Because he thought all of the people he had killed would come back in the afterlife and get revenge.
Q5: Where is the burial chamber located? How big is it?
It is located in the Lingtong District, Xi'an, Shaanxi province China. It was 100m high, 515m long from south to north and 485m wide from east to west.
Q6:Explain the process of building a Terracatta warrior?
They are made of red clay because it was the strongest clay they could find. They were sculptured in parts then put together by workers. It took alf a day to create one soldier.

There were 130 chariots, 520 horses, 150 calvary horses and the Emporer.
Q8: What do you think the people thought of Shi Huandgi during his lifetime.
I think he would of been a nasty man who got everything he wanted. He would of been ruthless, brave, great in battle and a hardcore ruler. I think this because of all the stories and videos I have seen and heard about him and think that he would of done anything to keep his throne.
