However, while the discovery lead to riches for the nation, the farmers who found the terra cotta army were doomed to debt and unfortunate circumstances.

Three of the farmers died within a few decades, relatively young — one of his own hand. The remaining farmers were resigned to work for lowly wages selling figurines of the army, and riddled with debt and medical ailments.
