As China entered a long period of civil war, however, with rival members of the Liu family and other pretenders contesting the whole region north of the Yangzi, the Xiongnu took advantage of the confusion to intervene in support of some participants and to encroach upon the northern commanderies of the empire.
In 36, as Liu Xiu, Emperor Guangwu of Later Han, destroyed his last major opponent within China, he was faced with substantial Xiongnu aggression along the Ordos loop of the Yellow River and eastwards in the valley of the Sanggan.

 Emperor guarded by government - World - theage.com.au
In Mr Zhang's case it is the legacy left by China's almost mythical first emperor, Qin Shi Huang, that has absorbed him since he graduated in 1978 and was sent home to work on the most significant archaeological find of the 20th century, Xian's famous army of terracotta warriors.
The Han dynasty historian, Sima Qian, in about 145BC, wrote of a burial chamber deep underground where mercury was used to simulate rivers and seas, the ceiling was studded with diamonds and pearls to represent stars and planets, and ingenious traps were laid to keep tomb-raiders away from the treasures buried with the emperor.
China's central Government has repeatedly denied permission for the Shaanxi Government to excavate Qin's tomb, on the grounds that existing technology and knowledge is inadequate to ensure the preservation of relics inside.
