Many people will be shocked when they see the terra cotta warriors of the first emperor of Qin, but at the same time, they will find a question: why does such a huge army have no weapons? What is the truth of the fact?
Why didn’t the terra cotta warriors have weapons? The truth is incredible!
When you visit the Museum of the terracotta warriors, you will find that the terracotta warriors are empty and empty with no weapons. The guide said that Xiang Yu burned the mausoleum of the first emperor and took the weapons from the terracotta warriors.
Later, archaeology found that the terra cotta warriors were looted and burned by a large number of military groups. This time, the purpose of tomb robbing was very clear, that is, weapons.
the main loss of the pit of Terra Cotta Warriors was weapons such as swords, spears, halberds, swords, chariots and horses, and wheels. Some of the terra cotta warriors were damaged, and gold and copper were still in the pit.
So who stole the weapons from the terra cotta warriors?
Suspect 1 Xiang Yu
Xiang Yu became the biggest suspect of stealing weapons from the mausoleum.
firstly, Xiang Yu had the mentality of revenge for the state of Chu and Xiang Liang, so he burned the Afang palace. Since he could burn the Afang palace, he also had the motivation to burn the mausoleum of the first emperor of Qin.
secondly, there is “in the historical records”; In the book of Han Dynasty 200 years later, there are also records of Xiang Yu’s crimes: Xiang Ji burnt his palace and found his family. After
, he killed sheep and sheep. The shepherd took the fire to ask for sheep and burned his Zang coffin Li Daoyuan, 600 years later, also recorded Xiang Yu’s crime in the shuijingzhu: “Xiang Yu entered the pass and sent 300 thousand people to transport crops for 30 days, but he couldn’t escape. The thieves in the east of the pass sold copper for sale, and the shepherds found sheep to burn, and the fire lasted for 90 days.”
Why the terracotta warriors of the first emperor of Qin didn’t have weapons? It’s incredible!
Unexpectedly, these records can alleviate Xiang Yu’s suspicion Records of history has the highest authority and the most direct record. It is said that Xiang Yu’s excavation of the mausoleum of the first emperor of Qin Dynasty was what Liu Bang scolded Xiang Yu before the army formation, in order to count down Xiang Yu’s crimes. Sima Qian only recorded it in the original book. In addition, he only said that Xiang Yu burned the Afang palace, and the words did not mention the mausoleum of the first emperor of Qin and Xiang Yu. The farther the
era, the less the data, the more difficult to verify it.
Ban Gu got more materials than Sima Qian did. He also made up a story about a shepherd boy who went to the mausoleum of the first emperor of Qin and caught fire by mistake. It’s hard not to avoid the suspicion of fishing for fame if he swears It’s hard for the bandit team to succeed. How can a shepherd boy enter the Qinling mausoleum to avoid being attacked by mercury gas? Besides, it’s necessary to ignite in a closed chamber with thin air, which violates the chemical principle. Only after a large-scale destruction with many holes and holes can he be burned by ventilation.
Li Daoyuan’s theory is even more insidious. According to hearsay, how many treasures can be transported by 300000 people in a month without stopping.
Suspect 2 Zhang Han
The chief designer of the mausoleum of the first emperor of Qin is Li Si, and the overseer is Zhang Han, the Shaofu order. Zhang Han is most familiar with the structure of the mausoleum. In the second year of the reign of Hu Hai, the general Zhou Zhang led his troops to kill dozens of Wanxiang Xianyang. Hu Hai was shocked and at a loss. The Shaofu order Zhang Han to advance and remonstrate: Your majesty, the exiles are coming. They can’t get rid of their thirst. There are a large number of labors in the construction of Lishan mausoleum. Please forgive the world, grant Weichen military power, and lead the troops to fight.
so Zhang Han led the Lishan labors to defeat Zhou zhangjun.
Zhang Han can take weapons and equipment from the armory and terracotta warriors of the mausoleum of the first emperor of Qin Dynasty to fight for hard labor.
however, taking weapons is taking weapons. Why the terracotta warriors will be destroyed? As an engineering supervisor, this is not only Zhang Han’s dereliction of duty, but also disrespect Secondly, and most importantly, the weapons in the mausoleum are capped at about 10000 yuan. If we need to equip hundreds of thousands of people for hard work, it will be a bit of a drop in the bucket
The smaller the suspicion of Zhang Han is, the greater the suspicion of Xiang Yu is. Because Zhang Han later surrendered to Xiang Yu, the secrets of the mausoleum of the first emperor of Qin are all in Zhang Han’s belly. In order to show his loyalty to Xiang Yu, Zhang Han is likely to tell the secret to his immediate superior.
so Xiang Yu launched a clear and all-round plunder, which is natural
Suspect 3 Liu Bang
Liu Bang’s possibility can’t be ruled out, because Liu Bang can do everything. It’s not impossible if Liu Bang does it and then blames Xiang Yu.
Liu Bang first entered Hangu pass, and when he arrived at Xianyang, he closed the “treasure house of Qin Dynasty”; There must be a file in the Treasury of the capital of the Qin state. There must be a construction drawing of the mausoleum of the first emperor of the Qin Dynasty in the file. After Liu Bang ascended the throne, he would surely get the secret file.
in terms of time, Liu Bang’s suspicion is not small.
has archaeological evidence that the weapons of the terracotta warriors and horses of the Qin mausoleum were stolen, just before the end of the Qin Dynasty and the beginning of the Han Dynasty to the reign of Emperor Wu of the Han Dynasty.
It is said that before emperor Wu of Han Dynasty, there was a tomb of Western Han Dynasty in pit No.1, in which wuzhu coins of Emperor Wu of Han Dynasty were unearthed, which shows that people in Emperor Wu of Han Dynasty did not know that this was the site of the burned and collapsed terracotta warriors.
scholars also determined that the burning time was not long after the completion of the tomb according to the mud in the tomb, that is, in the early Han Dynasty.
It is said in the records of collecting relics that the mausoleum of the first emperor of Qin was excavated in the early Han Dynasty
There is also evidence that it was stolen during the Western Han Dynasty. It is based on an iron spear in the cavity of the terracotta warriors. We should know that all of the terracotta warriors are official copper spears under the unified supervision, without iron spears.
iron spear and copper spear have been used together in the Warring States period. During the period of Emperor Wu of the Han Dynasty, iron spear prevailed, and copper spear was gradually replaced.
Looking closely, this is an iron spear of the Western Han Dynasty, which is the same as the iron spear unearthed in the tomb of the Western Han Dynasty
In the 12th year of Gaozu, the year when Liu Bang, 62, was dying, Liu Bang ordered people to guard the mausoleum for him on the grounds that the first emperor of Qin, the reclusive king of Chu, the king of Wei’an, the king of Qi’an and the king of Zhao mourned for the emperor Wuhou. There were five families of Wuji, the first emperor of Qin, twenty families of Wuling, and ten others Guarding the mausoleum in Ming Dynasty is a good deed to guard against the theft of the mausoleum in secret, or even to guard the theft of the mausoleum.
just a year ago, in the spring of Huaiyin, Han Xin rebelled, in the summer, Peng Yue rebelled, in the autumn, Qing Bu rebelled, three kings rebelled a year, and Liu Bang’s heart collapsed.
In the 12 years since Liu Bang was appointed to guard the mausoleum, Liu Bang is likely to send troops into the mausoleum to transfer the weapons among the terra cotta warriors. The biggest motivation is that the technical components of the weapons in the terra cotta warriors are too high (the bows and crossbows with a range of twice that of AK47 and the technology of casting swords with chrome plated sword body). Chen in the mausoleum is inevitably coveted by the unruly people. If he falls into the hands of the anti king, he will increase his worries
