An ancient giant tomb has been unearthed in Xi’an, China. It is however still unclear who was buried in it!
According to first investigations, the tomb was built by the first emperor, Qin Shi Huang, for his grandmother.
A giant tomb complex has been unearthed during the expansion of the Xi’an University of Finance and Economics. Archeologists say it may represent the second largest in China covering an amazing 173,325 square metres (550m length x 310m width).
Artifacts found on-site (inscribed pottery and objects of jade, gold, and silver) suggest that the tomb was built by the first emperor, Qin Shi Huang, for his grandmother. Researchers however still have to find the sarcophagus. Two carriages and the skeletons of 12 horses were also excavated from this huge mausoleum complex. Carriages, pulled by six horses, are a symbol of royal rank, equal to that of an emperor or a member of the royal family.
