Liverpool & the Terracotta Warriors Exhibition
We head to Liverpool and the World Museum to see the extraordinary Terracotta Warriors exhibition. We will be given a glimpse into the extraordinary story of Qin Shihuangdi, the First Emperor of China. His vast burial site and tomb complex was discovered near Xi’an in North West China in 1974, and since then, archaeologists have unearthed more than 8,000 life-sized Terracotta Warriors near Xi’an - each with individual clothing, hair and facial features. The story of the tomb’s Terracotta Warriors will be displayed alongside important artefacts and research relating to the formative years of the Chinese nation, including a number of objects that have never been on show in this country, excavated over the last 40 years from the Imperial Mausoleum and selected tombs.
