China, History of art: ancient & classical art,BCE to c 5, Asian history, Ancient history: to c 500 CE

A history of the famous Terracotta Army in Xi'an, China, exploring what we now know about it, what we still do not know and the theories that surround its creation.

TERRACOTTA WARRIORS provides an intriguing, original and up-to-date account of one of the wonders of the ancient world. Illustrated with a wealth of original photographs, this is the first book available for the general reader. In one of the most astounding archaeological discoveries of all time, the Terracotta Warriors were discovered by chance by farmers in 1974. We now understand that the excavated pits containing nearly eight thousand warriors and hundreds of horses are only part of a much grander mausoleum complex. There is a great deal still to be discovered and understood about the entire area whichis now thought to cover around 100 square kilometres. And there is the tantalising possibility of the opening of the imperial tomb.
