A visit to the Field Museum to see an exhibit of terracotta warriors and figures buried with first Emperor of China, Qin Shihuangdi, to guard, serve and protect him in the afterlife.

A single site containing more than 8,000 hand painted clay soldiers, horsemen, archers, and generals, buried for more than 2,000 years, was originally discovered by chinese villagers while digging for a well.
