I am Warrior ... get me out of here!

This is one of the first pictures of a terracotta solider that had been buried for about 2,200 years before being uncovered when archaeologists were cleaning the site in preparation for the latest excavation.

Archaeologists will begin the third phase of their dig at the famous terracotta army site tomorrow, hoping to find more sculpted figures and unravel some of the mysteries left behind by the "First Emperor".

The warriors are believed to be colorful, according to experts, but exposure to the outside atmosphere can easily make the paint fade.

However, experts said that major breakthroughs had been made in color-protection technology recently, which slows down the process of fading.

CCTV will broadcast the excavation live at 1 pm tomorrow, which is the China Culture Heritage Day.
