When China's first emperor, Qin Shi Huangdi, died in 210 BC, he was entombed along with a clay army of thousands of life-sized soldiers who were supposed to protect him as he entered the afterlife. More than 200 of the relics from his mausoleum (including weapons and animals) are on display at the Discovery Times Square.
