The Ancient Terracotta Warriors are Coming to the Franklin Institute
Experience the incredible story of one of the most significant archaeological discoveries in history at the Franklin Institute. The new exhibit now on display, entitled “Terracotta Warriors,” showcases the astounding story behind the awe-inspiring statues and explore their insights into the past.
In 1974, a farmer in China was digging a well when he struck upon fragments of terracotta, uncovering one of the most monumental achievements in human history. Buried beneath the surface of the land were thousands of life-sized statues, constructed over 2,000 years ago--silently and steadfastly guarding the tomb of their master, China's first emperor. In the years since their discovery, archaeologists have excavated and researched these warriors, exploring their intricacies, uncovering their histories, and unraveling their secrets.
See them on display at the Franklin Institute for the only east coast engagement of a two-city exhibit tour. “Terracotta Warriors” is a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition you won’t want to miss!
