China’s First Emperor and the Terracotta Warriors at World Museum Liverpool, City Centre 9 February — 28 October 2018 Tickets from £5.50

Showcasing objects from one of the world’s greatest archaeological discoveries, China’s First Emperor and the Terracotta Warriors at World Museum Liverpool spans almost 1,000 years of Chinese history; from the conflicts and chaos of the Warring States period, to the achievements and legacy of the Qin and Han dynasties.

The exhibition will include a number of objects that have never been on show in the UK before including material from museums and institutes from across Shaanxi Province, excavated over the last 40 years from the Imperial Mausoleum and selected tombs. These spectacular artefacts will shed light on the Emperor’s pursuit of immortality and show how he prepared for the afterlife, as well as help us to understand more about everyday life in China more than two thousand years ago.

This exhibition will be a major part of Liverpool’s 2018 celebrations and the city will be embracing its Far East links during the exhibition’s run, with a special China Dream season.
