    China's Wall Of Doom features not only the starting discovery of over 7,000 life-size terra-cotta statues, but also explores the mysteries surrounding the Great Wall of China. Both of these landmarks were built by the same Chinese emperor, Qin Shi Huangdi, a man obsessed with his own mortality. His tomb is protected by his own terra-cotta army soldier and has yet to be opened.

His accomplishments were unprecedented, his charisma irresistible. Credited with both unifying China and tormenting its citizenry, Qin Shi Huangdi, the "first emperor of China," is one of the most controversial leaders in the nation's history. His reign brought advance such as standardized currencies, weights and measures, unified written and spoken language and transportation systems. In battle, to, he was centuries ahead of his time - creating assembly lines (two millennia before Henry Ford) to mass-produced precision-crafted swords, arrows and other weapons. History dives into the ruler's complex legacy, from the brilliant military strategies that created an empire to his plans for the original Great Wall.
