  • The Terracotta Army is evidence of the organisational power of the Qin dynasty that unified China in 221 BC. It has become a symbol of China's long cultural history and, now that China is rapidly developing, it reminds the world of China's future potential. This book unfolds the historical and archaeological context of the Terracotta Army, and explores the new research and excavation that has been carried out in the years since its discovery in 1974.
