Palace of the Qin Emperor discovered

Fascinating news coming out of Chinese archaeological reports of the discovery at Xi’an of the first emperor’s palace complex near the location of the famous terracotta warriors. Very big, matching his famous mausoleum. You can read about it here. And on Hans Van Roon’s blog, which is an excellent site on the Silk Road.
