During the last two centuries BC, the Western Han Dynasty forged the first stable empire covering most of modern day China, presiding over a golden age that was to shape  Cjinese art and culture even today. In their search for immortality the Han royal family left a legacy of astonishing beauty and power. The contents of their royal tombs include jades, gold, silver and other precious items, plus armies of terracotta soldiers, official and servants. This book commemorates their spectacular display, for the first time in the West, at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge
