Who made the terracotta warriors?

 Q:   Ask a Question about Who made the terracotta warriors?       
Who made the terracotta warriors? In China the powerful Qin dynasty came to power in the 3rd century BC. They swiftly conquered their neighbours to make a large empire covering most of modern China. The Qin emperor Shi Huangdi standardized weights and measures and introduced a single form of currency.

He is best remembered for his construction of the Great Wall of China, which stretches for 2,250 km across the north of China.

It was built to prevent raids from nomadic people in the north. When the emperor died, a huge tomb was built to hold his body. It was filled with a guardian army of thousands of life-sized terracotta (pottery) warriors. After the emperor's death the Qin empire broke up into a series of smaller states.

The world was astonished when Chinese archaeologists began to uncover a huge army of life-sized warriors around the tomb of the emperor Shi Huangdi. Each figure was individually modelled.
