Transcript of terracotta army
By Liam Peachey, Cody fitzakerley and Leigh Devlin
Why were the terracotta warriors made?
How did people find the terracotta army?
The Terracotta Army was accidentally found by farmers digging a well in 1974. The pits contained more than 8000 stone warriors. They were found in Beijing, the capital of China. Even with all the technology we have now, some of the statues are to fragile to put back together.
The army was buried to protect the ancient tomb of the first Chinese Emperor, Qin Shi Huang di. He wanted the statues made so people would remember his ruling. Some of the statues were proven to have been burnt by another Chinese Emperor who didn't want them while he was ruling.
Terracotta Army - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
When did the construction of the Terracotta Army and mausoleum start?
Construction began in 246BC when Emperor Qin Shi Huang di was just 13 years old.720,000 people worked on the project. To make the parts of the statues and put them together took about 37 years.
What happened to most of the workmen who built the Terracotta Army and tomb?
The people that were working on the tomb when the Emperor died were buried alive with Qin to serve him in the afterlife. They weren't buried alone; they were buried with clerks, scribes, cooks, personal servants and minor court officials with them.
