Pit 3 of the Terracotta army in Xi’an. Archeologists believe that this pit is the command post for the entire army. They’ve come to the conclusion by way the number of soldiers and the formation within the pit. There are no battle formations, only 68 warriors, and one chariot. The excavations are on going and there is much more to be discovered, and uncovered.
