Episode 10 - Treasures of the Terracotta Army

The Terracotta Army in Xi’an, China is perhaps the greatest archaeological discovery in the last 50 years, but it remains shrouded in mystery. Historians now use 3D scanning technology to reconstruct the shattered remains of the warriors and reveal the dark secrets of a super-tomb built at the birth of China. 

The discovery of real weapons and bizarre stone-plated armor amongst the statues reveals the supernatural enemy the army was designed to face, and the discovery of dismembered skeletons thrown into pits, hint at the violent struggle for power that followed the death of China’s first emperor.
