The only other site I wanted to visit was the excavation Hangzhou Subway Map of the famous terracotta army, 6,000 lifesize clay soldiers, grouped in battle order Hangzhou Subway Map . This has attracted the world’s notice since it was discovered only ten years ago. The figures stand in ranks, many of the infantry hold swords or crossbows, some archers kneel in the firing position, faces intent on their aim, and there are several horse-drawn chariots with charioteers. The army is believed to guard a royal tomb, but no tomb has yet been discovered in the immediate vicinity. A guide said that the tomb builders and craftsmen of the terracotta army had been killed and buried in pits nearby so that they could never tell about the tomb’s location. What a waste of manpower and of art.
