This is a myth left by history.
When society has already entered the age of high-tech and computers, an army of powerful imperial soldiers clad in armor and wielding threatening sharp weapons suddenly looms out of the fog of time. As mysterious as extraterrestrial beings, the terra cotta soldiers are at the same time so lifelike and real. They have come up again out of the earth, under which they remained buried and unknown for more than 2,200 years. Was it because they could no longer bear the darkeness and loneliness underground, or because they wanted to show people their ancient glory, long forgotten by time, or was it because Emperor Qin Shi Huang had before his death, intended to demonstrate to later generations his absolute imperial power...
- From The Subterranean Army of Emperor Qin Shi Huang: The Eighth Wonder of the World.
