SCIENCE FESTIVAL: Ancient knowledge and modern science: rediscovering China’s terracotta army

Join Professor Marcos Martinón-Torres, Pitt-Rivers Professor of Archaeological Science, for this in-depth look at the terracotta army - one of the most iconic archaeological discoveries in the world. So many questions remain. How were knowledge, materials and workforce orchestrated to create something so exceptionally large and sophisticated? Are all the warriors different? Why are their bronze weapons still sharp and shiny? Archaeological science is beginning to provide the answers.
