Secret Chamber Found in Chinese Emperor’s Tomb


Chinese archaeologists uncovered an unrecorded underground chamber in the first Qin dynasty emperor’s (Chinese) tomb which is guarded by the Terracotta Army near the old imperial capital of Xian.

The tomb of Qin Shihuang was built over 2000 years ago and is described in historical records but not the new chamber. The chamber which is 30 metres (98 feet) deep and has 4 stepped walls was revealed by remote sensing technology.

While Emperor Qin’s brutality is renowned, he is considered a hero for making a united state. It has been suggested by a researcher that the undocumented chamber might have been built for the emperor’s soul.

  Good post  
Very interesting.

I love the way lots of these ancient heroes used to leave secrets behind after them. Can't imagine how many secrets still lie out there in history, most will probably never be found.

My first thought too -- I guess a movie and a book in the same month is having its effect ...

By the way, sometimes I see your name as "tomblik," other times in all caps. I've noticed that with other users as well. Can anyone shed some light on this for me?

It depends on how you log in. Log off and log in as L'ANGLAIS and you'll see what I mean.
