The Terracotta Army is one the greatest archaeological discoveries of our time. Uncovered in 1974 in Xian, China, the thousands of soldiers, chariots and horses, depict the armies of the first Emperor of China, and were buried with him in 210 BC, to protect him in the afterlife. With unique access to leading Chinese archaeologists and historians Professor Burman gives a fascinating account of the famous site including the most recent excavations, theories and discoveries. He lives in Beijing.
