A few years ago I went to see an exhibition here in the Netherlands with some of the world-famous Terracotta Warriors from the tomb of Emperor Qin Chihuang of China in Xi’an, Shaanxi province. They were unbelievably impressive.
Last week it was reported that archaeologists have found a large palace complex in the tomb. There is a main building with ten courtyard houses. The archaeologists are already working on the excavation of the palace since 2010. It is 690 meters long, 250 meters wide and is about 170.000 square meters big. They have found walls, doorways, rock roads and even pieces of pottery and bricks.
