Headless Horselessmen - Shaanxi Province
Oct 6 2001

After the warriors were fired, painted and placed into their formations, a wood beamed roof was built over the underground mausoleum. This wood eventually rotted, collapsed and damaged a majority of the soldiers and horses. The excavation and restoration continues to this day, almost thirty years after their accidental discovery - these still headless men are thought to have been members of the command post guard.
