Archaeologists unveil new terracotta warriors
Archaeologists have been painstakingly excavating the figures which were created centuries ago to guard the tomb of China's first emperor. 12 pottery horses along with the remains of chariots, weapons and tools were also found at the site.
"The excavation on the 200sq m site has found a total of 110 terracotta figurines," said Shen Maosheng. "The most significant discovery this time around is that the relics that were found were well-preserved and colourfully painted."
