The three pits of Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses are large accessory pits of the Mausoleum of Emperor Qin Shihuang. They were discovered by villagers from Xiyang Village of Lintong District when they sunk a well in March, 1974. This video mainly shows the largest Pit 1. With the shape of rectangle, Pit 1 is 230 meters long, 62 meters wide and 5 meters high. It is covered by a hangar-like structure, which is as large as two football fields put together. It houses more than 6,000 terra-cotta warriors and horses that are arrayed in a practical battle formation. 38 columns of terra-cotta warriors stand in 11 passages with horse-drawn chariots in the center.
