The Policy of the warring States tells the story of ldquo; Jing Ke stabbing Qin & rdquo;, which describes: & ldquo; Jing Ke expels the king of Qin, and the king of Qin still leaves & rdquo;, & ldquoThe left and right side said: & the king of ldquo; took the sword!”

So why was the king of Qin unable to draw his sword at his waist in times of crisis? was he really scared silly?

Recently, a number of archaeological achievements have been announced during the third excavation of the No. 1 pit of the terracotta warriors in Xi'an.The discovery of the figurines with swords provides a clue to solve this puzzle.

It is understood that according to the density calculation, there are more than 6000 terracotta figures and horses in pit 1 of Qin terracotta warriors, forming a large phalanx of chariots and infantry, combined with pits 2 and 3, infantry, cavalry, chariots, and command organs. the lineup is huge.


Among them, the unearthed figurines with swords gave a lot of surprises, from the scene observation.At that time, the long swords used by the Qin army were all hung vertically around the waist.However, because the scabbard is too long, it is impossible to pull it out directly. It is necessary to push the scabbard back to the back position in order to pull it out completely.



It is worth noting that some teachers said during the teaching that the king of Qin carried the sword on his back and then pulled it out to hurt Jing Ke, but this translation is not accurate and does not conform to the situation at that time. This discovery provides a way to solve this ancient riddle.
