Terracotta Armies: View from the Bronze Age

Dr. Lothar van Falkenhausen, Archaeologist

Embassy of Romania

Both Qin and Han Dynasties buried their emperors with vast terracotta armies. Why? Dr. Lothar van Falkenhausen who last month gave us a talk on bronze bells and their music, has kindly agreed to talk to us again, this time on the history of burial customs in the 1st millennium B.C. and the religious beliefs that underlie them.
