New Secrets of the Terracotta Army

Pioneering research reveals fascinating new secrets about the extraordinary Teracotta Army and the people who made them over two millennia ago.

The discovery of China’s fabled Terracotta Army in 1974 captured the imagination of the world.  But that first dig only revealed a fraction of this enormous and extraordinary treasure. 

Since then, scientists have resumed work on the site, and their research has turned up a series of new discoveries about the warriors and the people who made them over two millennia ago. This film, with exclusive access to pioneering research conducted by UCL and the Terracotta Army Museum, reveals those new secrets.
