How were the warriors found?

In the spring of 1974, when digging wells were about one mile far to mausoleum of Qin shihuang emperor, some peasants discovered the terracotta warriors accidentally.

Xi'an is a world-famous city for her ancient culture. It abounds with historical sites and cultural relics, among which the terracotta figures of the Qin Dynasty are considered to be the outstanding ones. It is praised as the "eighth wonder of the world". It attracts tens of thousands of tourists both at home and abroad to come here just to feast their eyes on the magnificent sight. The eight thousand life-size terracotta warriors and horses arranged in majestic-looking battle array, vividly reproduce the great daring of Qin Shihuang when he unified China.
