Narrative of a Shi Huangdi terracotta Soldier

Whatever we all know of the empires of early Chinese is mainly from two major sources, archaeological discoveries and written records. The Chinese then did not leave many imperial monuments like the early Egyptians above ground. However they mostly used their energies to build works which were public like the Grand Canal and also the great walls. As per now, the only stone buildings which exist are the pagodas, the tombs and monument stones with memorial features which are limited. The interpretation is then complicated by the lack of visible remains.

Dynastic histories, ritual ceremonies, biographies and court events are then a great wealth of records written covering an information range. The court scholar was then liable for recording selected and can be interpreted, to accommodate the rulers or the times. It is strange that to date with all that is recorded there is no textual reference to the emperor’s terra-cotta army which has been found. It then leads you to get to know the omitted things from the texts recorded regarding the reign of Emperor Qin.Rich soil with the clues of the past showed that their traditions of how they used to bury the dead was required in the next world.

The archaeologists and the historians have searched for as much information as possible about the first Emperor and are still in the process through research. They have the knowledge of Ying Zheng the king who appointed himself after he defeated the states which were the most powerful one by one. He then gave himself the title of Qin Shi Huangdi which stands for the first sovereign emperor in Chinese. He is then surrounded by a lot of misery but ruthless is the best word to describe an emperor of his type who condemned many men to the construction of his palace and tomb. The unification of China has been unsuccessful before his reign.
