The Emperor's Silent Army

by Jane O'Connor

While digging a new well during a drought in 1974, three farmers in Lintong County of the People's Republic of China uncovered a head made of terracotta. Archeologists soon discovered an army of thousands of clay warriors that guarded the tomb of China's first emperor, Qin Shihuang.
