Due to popular demand we have moved the lecture to our larger venue, Samsung Hall! So there is plenty of space for everyone.

Although it will soon be 40 years since the Terracotta Army from the Qin Dynasty was ‘discovered,’ new findings continue to be reported and alternative interpretations suggested. Additional archaeological findings, advanced conservation techniques and new perspectives are among the many ideas which will be discussed in this lecture to supplement what is already known about these findings, which are considered one of the wonders of the world. This is a great way to prepare for the Terracotta Warriors Exhibition opening at the Asian in late February.

Albert Dien is Professor Emeritus at Stanford University. A professor of Chinese History for many years, he still keeps an active schedule of research and speaking engagements. He is co-editor of a work in progress, The Cambridge History of China, volume two: The Six Dynasties. His primary field of research is the Early Medieval Period in Chinese history.
