Weekly Photo Challenge: Relic

Then peasant farmers came along and tried to dig a well and in lieu of water they discovered the 8th Wonder of the World… the Terracotta Army.

Cry Havoc and let slip the dogs of war!

 

And like the gift that keeps on giving, there are still thousands more of these warriors to discover..and put together again!
