Chinese archeologists have unearthed 110 terracotta warriors of ancient China which had lain buried under the ground near the mausoleum of Qin Emperor in the ancient Chinese city of Xian as reported in australian.com.au dated 11th of June 2012.
A total of 110 life size figurines along with 12 pottery horses, portions of chariots, weapons and tools have come to the surface after excavation of 200 square meters of area.
These warriors are believed to be a part of an Army which symbolically guarded the tomb of the first Emperor of China.
A vintage shield with geometric patterns on it of 221-206 BC was also found – the colors of these relics are still bright and vibrant.
This has been informed by Shen Maosheng from the Qin Shihuang Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum – this is the agency which is responsible to maintain the tomb.
Another 11 warriors have been located- these are yet to be retrieved.
