Ancient Terracotta Soldiers are Coming to Chicago
Move over Mastodon's the ancient Chinese terracotta soldiers are coming to the Field Museum in Chicago.
I remember seeing the pictures and studying about these soldiers in my Anthropology class in college and soon both you and I can see the real thing in March.
DNAInfo reports that some of life size terracotta warriors soldiers which guarded an ancient Chinese emperor's tomb, will appear in Chicago this spring.
The new permanent Chinese exhibit will open March 4th at the Field Museum. Ray DeThorne, the museum's chief marketing officer, said that "the touring exhibit of soldiers will make a temporary stay, but Chicago will be the statues' only North American stop "for a while."
Cool. I'd love to see these in person. Just think you can make a trip over spring break to see them and all the other fun and interesting things that Chicago's Field Museum holds.
