Ancient China from Above

Latest Project: I spent a great deal of last year travelling around China for my new 2-part series for National Geographic – Ancient China from Above, Season 2. We used drones and LIDAR – amazing laser technology – to discover fascinating insights about the tomb of the Qin Emperor and his terracotta army, and an astonishing Bronze Age city called Sanxindui. We also explored an ancient tomb recently discovered beneath a school with painted ceilings; one of the most extraordinary sites I have ever seen. I was also extremely privileged to view and handle ‘oracle bones’ – ancient turtle shells engraved with some of the earliest writing in history.
