The life-sized terracotta soldiers protecting the tomb of the first emperor of China, Qin Shi Huangdi (259 BC–210 BC), were accidentally found by well-diggers in 1974.
Since the discovery of the First Emperor’s tomb, about 2,000 of these six-foot-tall clay figures have been uncovered.
While a person could travel to Xi’an, China, to visit this vast ongoing archeological project, closer to home Discovery Times Square is showing 10 of these warriors in a new exhibition in New York City!
