Terracotta Army Post (1)

My first post, and the sad news that no photoghaphy was allowed
in the hall where the Terracotta Army was being shown.
I'll try and put you in the picture in words .We were of course able to photograph any where else in the British Museum of which I will be showing from time to time.

Who was the 1st Emperor?

One of the Greatest Rulers.

Ying Zheng was born in 259BC, When he was 13 he became the King
of Qin (pronounced chin) one of seven states at war with each other.

With his great leadership skills Qin soon conquered all the other states
and made himself Qin Shihuangdi. 1st Emperor of the Qin.

To be continued.
