    Gotta love the press. Never let the truth get in the way of a good story! There is a very informative thread on Chinese crossbows here though.  https://historum.com/threads/han-dynasty-crossbow-iii.179336/page-1

    The Daily Mail seems to be the UK's version of US's The National Enquirer who's motto seems to be "never tell the facts, when anything you make up sounds more dramatic!

    hoping that a science based publication will do a complete report on this within a year..  I'm part of a scale model R/C model warship group,, the we laugh at the news that reports every naval ship as a battleship..  I did get to visit the terra cotta site 10 years back,,photos can't due it justice,, the amount of unexcavated area is amazing, most likely other sites exist.. the museum is great..
