110 new terracotta warriors unearthed in China

Archaeologists working in China have uncovered 110 new terracotta warriors and 12 pottery horses in Xi’an.

“The… excavation on the 200-square-metre (2,152-square-feet) site has found a total of 110 terracotta figurines,” Shen Maosheng from the Qin Shihuang Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum — which oversees the tomb — told AFP.

“The most significant discovery this time around is that the relics that were found were well-preserved and colourfully painted,” Shen, deputy head of the museum’s archaeology department, said.

He added that archaeologists had pinpointed the location of another 11 warriors but had yet to unearth them.
