New Secrets of the Terracotta Warriors

About the Show

The discovery of China’s Terracotta Army in 1974 captured the world's imagination. But that first dig only revealed a fraction of this enormous and extraordinary treasure. With exclusive access to pioneering research conducted by University College London and the Terracotta Army Museum, this documentary reveals those new secrets, uncovering the true extent of the site. New insights into how the figures were made, including revolutionary 3D computer modelling of the warriors’ heads, challenges our understanding of how sophisticated technology and society were in ancient China.
