LONDON, Dec. 21 (Xinhua) -- It has been described as the one of the last natural pine forests in Scotland, used in a dramatic scene in a Harry Potter blockbuster movie.

After a race against time, the people who live around the pine forest at Loch Arkaig near Spean Bridge learned Wednesday they have helped raise enough money to buy the woodland.

Arkaig Community Forest, in partnership with the Woodland Trust, raised thousands of dollars to buy the site spanning more than 1,000 hectares.

The Woodland Trust launched a bid earlier this year to raise funds to buy and restore the magnificent but degraded ancient Caledonian pinewood on the shores of Loch Arkaig in the Highlands of Scotland.

"The opportunity to buy this iconic landscape was time-limited with less than nine months to raise the necessary funds. But, in partnership with local group Arkaig Community Forest, we secured fantastic support from individuals and organizations across the UK and succeeded in raising the 500,000 pounds (617,100 U.S. dollars) needed to buy the land," said the Woodland Trust.

During World War II, the pine forest was used to train army commandoes to prepare them for action against the enemy. One of the exercises caused a major fire, damaging many of the trees. Today they are referred to as "ghost trees" still standing as a lasting memory of its role in the war.

The forest and the loch (lake) formed a dramatic backdrop in a scene for the film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, with the three young wizards, Harry, Hermione and Ron flying over it on a dragon before leaping into the lake.

The pinewoods was put up for sale by the Forestry Commission, with the Woodland Trust given the chance to buy if it could raise the funds.

" Terra Cotta Warriors.

A Chinese archeology expert on Thursday refuted the view of a BBC report that Terracotta Warriors were inspired by ancient Greek sculpture Women's Aaron Donald Jersey , slamming it as a deliberate ""exaggeration to gain influence.""

""A group of archaeologists working on the tomb of Emperor Qin (259-210 BC) are dishonest with their research and always take things they imagine as fact,"" Ni Fangliu, a Nanjing-based archeology expert, told the Global Times on Thursday.

The BBC report said the inspiration for the Terracotta Warriors Women's Jared Goff Jersey , found at the Tomb of the First Emperor near today's Xi'an, may have come from ancient Greece, quoting Li Xiuzhen, an archaeologist from Emperor Qin Shi Huang's Mausoleum Site Museum.

Li said that ""we now think the Terracotta Army Women's Todd Gurley II Jersey , the Acrobats and the bronze sculptures found on the site have been inspired by ancient Greek sculpture and art,"" which is an evidence of close contact between the First Emperor's China and the West before the formal opening of the Silk Road.

But Ni refuted the claim, noting, ""The Records of the Grand Historian provides detailed written account of the building process of Qin's tomb including the design of all the entombed articles in the underground palace Cheap Robert Woods Jersey , and doesn't mention any Western contacts with China,"" said Ni.

The Records of the Grand Historian, a monumental Chinese work covering the ancient Chinese and world history, was finished by 94 BC by Sima Qian Cheap Sammy Watkins Jersey , an official from the Han Dynasty.

Two renowned ancient civilizations have their own special features, thus there is no basis to say the artistic work of one was inspired by another civilization because of similarities, Ni said.
