Emporer Qin’s Terracotta Men

E

Today, I went to see the Terracotta soldiers at Liverpool World Museum. It was an amazing experience, which I would highly recommend. Met some pretty cool people there as well. If your name is Chloe, then hi! I am going to share a few photos from my day there, and a wee bit of history. 

These soldiers, built for Emperor Qin, were to be his servants and soldiers in the afterlife, including generals, chariots, horses, servants, and animals for food. The work on his grand mausoleum began when he turned 13, and continued after his death when he was 49. They were only discovered in 1979, by farmers building a well, and due to the sheer size of the mausoleum, the tomb of Emperor Qin is still being excavated today!
