Early China is best known for the dazzling artifacts it has left behind. This book examines the social context in which these terracotta figures, gilt-bronze lamps, and other objects unearthed during archaeological excavations were created and the lives of the real individuals who made them. From workshops to marketplace to the court, Barbieri-Low explores these artisans' lives and careers from a variety of aspects and humanizes the remains of the past.
