Did We Just Discover The Secret Behind The 2,000-Year-Old Preservation Of The Terracotta Armys Weapons?

Since its discovery in the 1970s, the pristine preservation of weapons buried alongside the 2,000-strong Qin Terracotta Army of Xi’an has stumped scientists. Despite their protective positioning within the mausoleum of China’s emperor Qin Shihuang for more than 2,000 years, neither the warriors nor the bronze components of their weapons have decayed much. For decades, scientists believed that Qin weapon-makers had developed an advanced anti-rust technology, known today as chromate conversion coating, based on the detection of chromium traces on the surface of bronze weapons buried with the soldiers – a technology only patented in the early 20th century and still in use today. Publishing their results in Scientific Reports, a team of researchers now suggests that this theory should “be abandoned”. Instead, the …
