Terracotta Warriors are on Display in Bern’s History Museum

by swisscham in Culture & Society

When peasant Yang Zhifa found a piece of old terracotta as he dug a well, he thought he’d stumbled on a disused kiln which could supply him with free jars. How wrong he was: it turned out to be the first warrior of the famous Chinese terracotta army. A selection of the 2,000-year-old Qin warriors, discovered in 1974 in China’s central Shaanxi province, are now on display in Bern’s history museum.
