In China, about 40 years ago, archaeologists made
the most incredible find buried in the earth. They discovered over 6000
life-sized warriors, made of clay, buried together, standing upright, as
if ready to fight a war.
Some statues are kneeling. Some have bows and
arrows made of clay, drawn and ready. Some have armor made of clay.
There were chariots and spears and knives and all kinds of weapons, all
made of terra-cotta clay. Even their clay faces were different. Some men
had moustaches. No two statues looked alike.
It was an amazing discovery!
