Fall of Civilizations - 10 - China's Han Dynasty - The First Empire in Flames - [AUDIO ONLY]

A city in ruins. A dynasty in tatters. An empire in ashes... In this episode, Paul Cooper looks at the remarkable story of the first empire of ancient China, the Han dynasty. With ancient Chinese poetry, songs and folk music, we look back at the first empire's rise, its remarkable technological advances, and its first, tentative attempts to make contact with the empires of the west. Finally, we look at all the reasons behind the first age of Imperial China's final, dramatic fall.
