For more than 2 000 years, hundreds of pyramid tombs towered over the fabled Silk Road near the ancient Chinese city of Xian, their secrets buried and largely ignored. These enormous structures, built in preparation for the afterlives of China’s Emperors and other royalty, may hold riches beyond belief.  Mostly still unexcavated they are slowly revealing their mysteries to archeology.
