"There were seven wonders in the world, and the discovery of the Terracotta Army, we may say, is the eighth miracle of the world."
–Jacques Chirac
Wikipedia has a page called:

The Terracotta Army is a Classical Era Wonder in Civilization VI. It must be built on flat Grassland or Plains adjacent to an Encampment with a Barracks or Stable.


The Terracotta Army is initially great for militaristic players, providing them with General6 Great General points and unit promotions that allow them to launch an early offensive. Come the Industrial Era, it becomes more valuable to cultural players, whose Archaeologists will be free to explore foreign lands and pilfer Artifact6 Artifacts from the Antiquity Site (Civ6) Antiquity Sites and Shipwreck (Civ6) Shipwrecks they find there.

Prior to Gathering Storm, Victoria's England can make especially good use of this wonder by conquering cities on other continents to enlarge both its territory and army early on, then building lots of Archaeological Museums and sending Archaeologists all around the world to fill them with Artifact6 Artifacts.

Civilopedia entry Edit

Since his efforts at immortality didn’t bear fruit, when it came time for Qin Shi Huang, first emperor of Qin, to be interred, he made sure that it was done with style as befitted his greatness. Never lacking in hubris, the emperor had ordered work to begin on his mausoleum in 246 BC, when he was but 13 years old and just ascended to the throne. According to the Chinese geographer Li Daoyuan, writing six centuries after, Mount Li was selected for the site because of its auspicious geology, with its southern face rich in jade and its northern slopes in gold. In the Records of the Grand Historian (by one Sima Qian), it is claimed some 700 thousand laborers would be employed in digging and outfitting the tomb and filling it with 8000 soldiers, 130 chariots with horses, and 150 mounted cavalry – all made from clay-based ceramic – and armed with functioning weapons. Arranged in military formation. Hence, the “Terracotta Army.” Undisturbed until 1974, when discovered by peasants attempting to dig a well. So much for hubris.
