China's First Emperor And The Terracotta Warriors Exhibition
Graham Clark, Features Writer
Horse Keeper and Cavalry Horse
For over 2,000 years an underground army of life-sized Terracota warriors secretly guarded the tomb of China's First Emperor, Qin Shi Huang, until a chance discovery in 1974 unlocked the mysteries of a vanished empire.

The exhibits have made the 5,000 mile journey to Liverpool for the exhibition at the World Museum. Whilst not nearly as big as the exhibition 10 years ago at the British Museum in London the exhibition is a coup for the north.

Kneeling Archer, Qin Dynasty
Visitors will come face to face with extraordinary Terracotta Warriors, including a life size Terracotta horse as well as other objects from the Emperor's vast burial complex.

7 Warriors
Spanning almost 1,000 years the exhibition sheds light on the formative years of the Chinese nation, from the bitter struggles of warring states in the 8th century BC to the rise of the Qin State and the unification of China by the First Emperor in 221 BC, concluding with peace and prosperity of the Han Dynasty (206 BC to 220AD).

Armoured suit
It plans to book in advance as there are only a limited number of day tickets which sell out early. It is also a good idea not to visit when the school holidays are on. We went when it was the February half term and even with pre-booked tickets had to queue 20 minutes to get into the exhibition.

Tickets are priced at £14.50 for adults and £13.00 for concessions and £5.50 for children aged between 6 and 17 years, free for aged 5 years and under.

The exhibition runs until 28 October 2018 at The World Museum, Liverpool
