Warfare in Early China and the Pottery Army of the Qin

If you're a history nerd - or even better, a history nerd with a penchant for ancient China - the Houston Museum of Natural Science wants to feed your intellectual fire with a lecture by Stanford professor Albert E. Dien. Dien's talk, Warfare in Early China and the Pottery Army of the Qin, will cover the mighty Qin Dynasty (the actual dynasty, not the West University-area restaurant) and its two impressive armies (one flesh and blood, the other terra cotta). It's way better than staying home and watching the History Channel. 6:30 p.m. One Hermann Circle Drive. For information, visit www.hmns.org. $12 to $17.
Tue., Sept. 22, 6:30 p.m., 2009
