Amid the hustle, the bustle and also the shiny bright lights of Times Square in NYC there is a wonderful informative exhibit of ancient Chinese history. The Discovery Times Square exhibit Terracotta Warriors Defenders of China's First Emperor. This exhibit is absolutely great!
From time to time I share a bit of history - sometimes ancient history. This is definitely ancient history! Back over 2,200 years ago the first Emperor of China, Qin Shihuangdi, prepared for his afterlife, after he became the ruler of the Qin Dynasty. His tomb took over 40 years to build and more than 700,000 workers labored. The terracotta warriors and horses were made to be included in his tomb.

The Terracotta Warriors Defenders of First Emperor closes on August 26. If you live near or are planning a trip to NYC, this is a wonderful exhibit!
History is fascinating!
