If we want to say that the most mysterious ancient tomb in China, it must be the tomb of Qin Shihuang. Not only is it large-scale, but even today, more than 2000 years later, there is no sign that Qin Shihuang’s tomb has been patronized by tomb robbers. Some people say that there are “Tomb keepers” in the tomb of the first emperor of Qin Dynasty, but I really don’t agree with them. Today, Xiaobian will take you to count the six major organs that may exist in the tomb of Qin Shihuang and make the tomb robbers fear!
1. Mechanism crossbow
I believe many netizens are not unfamiliar with this crossbow. In many movies and TV dramas, there will be many similar scenes. Because the tomb robbers enter the tomb and trigger some mechanisms, they will shoot countless poisonous arrows or even rockets from the walls and other places. Does this kind of mechanism exist in the tomb of Qin Shihuang? Although there is no direct evidence to prove its existence at present, there is a record in historical records about making crossbows for Qin Shihuang’s tomb, so the possibility of its existence is very large.
2. Serial reproduction
This should be a very advanced trap in ancient times. When people are about to walk from the top, the trap looks like an ordinary floor, but once people step on it, the floor will immediately become a trap and make people fall. The most powerful part is not this, because it is a “chain” flip, with a chain. Once someone falls into the trap, it can immediately return to its original state, which is the same as before.
3. Quicksand layer
Quicksand layer is a kind of anti-theft method widely used in ancient tombs, and its operation is relatively simple, as long as a layer of quicksand is set around the mausoleum. Once a grave robber breaks into the quicksand layer, the quicksand will flow into the tomb continuously, and many grave robbers will be buried alive in the process.
4. Ambush fire
It has to be said that ancient people were very clever. They separate combustible gases (such as biogas) from combustible materials (such as phosphorus). Once someone opens a tomb, the fusion of the two will produce a huge flame. At that time, it is not too much to burn up the whole mausoleum.
In fact, the curse of tombs is not only found in the pyramids of Egypt, but also in ancient tombs of China. For example, “the one who steals tile dies”, “the one who makes a mound never leaves the house” and so on. Perhaps in ancient times, such a curse could really have a deterrent effect, but today, such a thing without scientific basis is really not credible.
6. Water Galaxy
There is a saying that in order to show his status, Qin Shihuang constructed a very beautiful picture of rivers and mountains in his tomb with mercury as the river and night pearl as the star after his death. And many people know that Mercury is highly toxic, and so many years have passed, mercury evaporation in the air, even if only a small inhalation, there will be life-threatening. And in recent years of research, scientists have also detected the presence of mercury in the tomb of Qin Shihuang, and its content is very large.
Speaking of this, Xiaobian has to admire the wisdom of our ancient people. In the past when science was so underdeveloped, they could think of so many ways to guard against theft. How about that? Do you admire their wisdom?
