Hirst spoke of his excitement about working with one the most significant American directors of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. He got on the phone to Justin Pollard, my historical adviser. They chatted, partly in Latin, about sources for the stories and Roman poetry. Hirst wrote the screenplay for the film Elizabeth , starring Cate Blanchett as the young Tudor queen, which won one Oscar and was nominated for six more, including best picture.
In North America, Vikings drew up to eight million viewers an episode. It has so far had a run of six series, with 90 episodes. The Tudors spanned four seasons and 37 episodes, won Emmy awards and was nominated for Golden Globes. But he was fantastically interesting and ambitious when he was younger.

There is something astonishing about the rise of a relatively small kingdom to world power within a very short space of time. The drama will draw parallels with today. With the Tudors and Vikings, we make them seem resonant and relevant to people today.
The Last Legion - Wikipedia
Hirst has been accused of sexing up history. If you and I saw the same event, we would report them differently. Every account is partial. Three are filled with the terra-cotta soldiers, horse-drawn chariots, and weapons. The fourth pit is empty, a testament to the original unfinished construction. Archaeologists estimate the pits may contain as many as 8, figures, but the total may never be known. Qin's tomb itself remains unexcavated, though Siam Qian's writings suggest even greater treasures.

The account indicates the tomb contains replicas of the area's rivers and streams made with mercury flowing to the sea through hills and mountains of bronze. Precious stones such as pearls are said to represent the sun, moon, and other stars.

Modern tests on the tomb mound have revealed unusually high concentrations of mercury, lending credence to at least some of the historical account. Chinese archaeologists are also using remote-sensing technology to probe the tomb mound. The technique recently revealed an underground chamber with four stairlike walls.
An archaeologist working on the site told the Chinese press that the chamber may have been built for the soul of the emperor. Experimental pits dug around the tomb have revealed dancers, musicians, and acrobats full of life and caught in mid-performance, a sharp contrast to the military poses of the famous terra-cotta soldiers.
