The local farmers represented by Yang Zhifa are considered widely as those who found the Terracotta Warriors.In March of 1974, a team made up by 9 local peasants began to dig a well at Xiyang Village in Lintong District, about 40 km (25 mil) east of Xi’an, to solve the water supply problem. The project went well first, however, with the deepening of the well, the peasants found that the soil layers became harder and harder. A few days later, when the farmer Yang Zhifa was working in the well, his hoe stuck something hard. At first, he thought it was a bronze relic or something similar. Digging a little deeper, he found it look like a pottery god figurine. Later, more pottery figurines were found. From then on, the nine peasants participated in digging the well are deemed as those who found the Terracotta Warriors, including Yang Zhifa, Yang Peiyan, Yang Xinman, Yang Quanyi, Yang Wenxue, Yang Yanxin, Yang Yizhou, Yang Wenhai and Wang Puzhi. Among them, Yang Zhifa is best-known because he was interviewed by Bill Clinton in 1998 during Bill’s visit to the Terracotta Army. To some degree, it means he has been recognized by the authority as the first person discovered the Terracotta Warriors.
