    Book details


Legend has it that in 206BC the first emperor of unified China, Shi Huang-te, decreed that after his death his body should be clothed in jade, cast adrift in a lake of mercury within a pyramid, and protected by an everlasting army. In 1974, archaeologists discovered the first of more than 7000 lifesize terracotta warriors buried near the pyramid tomb of Shi Huang-te, confirming that the legend was more than a myth. But why were the massive soldiers, each weighing more than half a tonne, buried there at all? Was it simply to guard the emperor in the afterlife? Or was there more to the legend?

Review Text

  • By R. Low on 7 January 2009

    Cotterell makes some very bold claims in this book, none of which are backed up by evidence. He even claims that the builders of the Terractotta Warriors and Shi Huang's tomb knew that the atomic number of mercury is 80. If the ancient Chinese (this is 200 BC) knew any nuclear physics such as this they would have done far more with it than just encode numbers in their funerary art!The other claims that numbers 6, 9, 666, 999, etc. are encoded are almost certainly bogus: adding digits, multiplying various numbers with small constants added will give you almost any outcome you desire.If you appreciate rigour to any degree, this book must be avoided.

    I first came across Cotterell's work serialised in the Daily Mail around ten years ago and have followed his exploration of ancient civilisations - starting in Mexico and progressing through Peru, Egypt and now China - ever since.The central theme of the book(s) is the ancient civilisation's belief in the sun god. This book pulls them all together and explains how all of the world's ancient sun-worshipping civilisations (Mexico, Peru, Egypt and China) possessed a scientific understanding that modern science is yet to appreciate.They acquired their knowledge from their spiritual leaders (who he refers to as Supergods) Lord Pacal of the Maya, the Viracocha's of Peru, Tutankhamun of Egypt and Chin Shi Huangdi of China. These miracle makers taught their people of the spiritual way of life - how to get to heaven, and what life is really all about. They used extremely sophisticated methods of encoding information which is only now coming to light through the aid of computers.This book follows the theme of the previous books and decodes the secret legacy of the Chinese Supergod Chin Shi Huangdi left behind in the 8,000 life-size terracotta warriors. The amazing discovery revealed in this book illustrates the fact that all these ancient civilisations developed systems of encoding information in a similar manner, but at greatly differing times in history and on separate continents. Coincidence or design?Cotterell's books challenge conventional wisdom - this one is no exception - the key requirement for the reader is an open and enquiring mind and the willingness to challenge conventional thinking!Enjoy.
