The emperor’s last army
Accidentally discovered in 1974 by farmers digging a well, the mausoleum of the Qin Emperor in northwest China revealed a massive assemblage of terracotta figures depicting the emperor’s armies. Edward Burman reveals how groundbreaking new excavations will offer even greater insight into 3rd-century BCE China.
Burman tells of how the First Emperor was buried with a splendor of riches—all guarded by his army of terracotta warriors. He explores theories that surround the creation of the army as well as its function. And he suggests that the next round of excavations may far surpass the size and conception of the original discovery.
The Terracotta Warriors brims with the secrets of a vanished world—and the tantalizing mysteries that await.
