Chinese Invention: Terra Cotta Army
In preparation for his death Qin Shi Huang, built a replica of his kingdom underground and he was finally laid to rest in the underground palace at its centre. It took over 720 000 people, 37 years to build. The terra-cotta army were created to defend his underground kingdom from attack. He expanded his military strength building an army of one million professional soldiers. This influenced the world because maybe some armys can use similar soldiers to strengthen an army.
