Archaeologists discover Imperial palace near terra-cotta army

Archaeologists announced this morning that they had found the remains of an Imperial Palace near the near the tomb of Emperor Qin Shi, the tomb which is famously home to China’s popular terra-cotta army.

Both sites lay on the edge of Xi’an, an ancient capital city now located in central China. The palace is estimated to be roughly a quarter of the size of Beijing’s Forbidden City and is the largest complex yet found in Qin Shi’s twenty-two square mile mausoleum.

Eh, there’s not that much there, but it’s such an extensive site I suppose there’s much, much more to be found.
