Walking around Xi'an you can feel the pride in there history there. It's an amazing city that has a a 17km wall built around it from the Zhou Dynasty. It was built around the same time as the Terra-Cotta warriors. In 220 BC is when the warriors were built but were thought to have been lost forever until 1974 when a local farming was out digging for wells discovered what turned out to be one of the greatest archaeological finds of the 20th century. They have 3 separate pits discovered and they are saying that they have only discovered %20 of the actual site. They have uncovered over 8000 warriors so far with about 2000 in pristine shape and on show so people can see. Walking along the barrier that housed most of the found warriors was so impressive that you don't actually appreciate it until you stand at one end and look out. Thats when you realize just how massive this find is actually going to be when they uncover everything. When you actually walk into the main building where the majority of the warriors are on display is when you appreciate just how huge this find is.
