Felix Long

about this book: To Conquer Heaven was sparked into being by a brilliant National Geographic documentary on the lost tomb of the First Emperor of China.

A gorgeous, immaculately groomed Chinese-French lady read aloud a passage of Sima Qian's "Annals of the Grand Historian". It is the only textual reference to the lost tomb.

"Replicas of palaces, scenic towers, and the hundred officials, as well as rare utensils and wonderful objects, were brought to fill up the tomb. Craftsmen were ordered to set up crossbows and arrows rigged to shoot down any intruder. Mercury was used to fashion imitations of the hundred rivers and the Yangtze, constructed in such a way that they seemed to flow."

She looked up at the camera, breaking the fourth wall, and whispered "it sounds so exciting".

I was enthralled by a sophisticated, glamourous academic who could not wait to cast off the Lacroix and grab a Fedora and a whip. That excitement led me on a journey of research and discovery where plausible conjecture and Mythbusters science laid a new tale across ancient ones.
