(CRI) Archaeologists believe that the appearance of the Terracotta Warriors in the tomb of Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor of China was inspired by ancient Greeks, the BBC reported on Tuesday.

Ancient Greeks were even thought to have directly trained local artisans of the Qin Empire (221-206 BC). The latest finding broke the theory that the first direct contact between China and the west was through Marco Polo in the 13th century.

"There is evidence that the earliest contacts between China and Europe was made before the opening of the ancient 'Silk Road'.

It is much earlier than what the current record shows," said Li Xiuzhen, renowned archaeologist in the Emperor Qin Shi Huang's Mausoleum Site Museum.

Do you know you are the third poster of the same cut-and-paste article?

To give you a short answer to your question: yes, most likely the terracotta statues were created by Chinese workers who had been trained by Greek artisans.
