Liverpool & The Terracotta Warriors

Liverpool & The Terracotta Warriors

The famous Terracotta Warriors are an army of intricately-carved sculptures of the soldiers of China’s first Emperor, Qin Shi Huang.

Discovered in 1974, the Terracotta soldiers are believed to date back to the third century BC, and were sculpted to guard Qin Shi Huang’s tomb. The unique Chinese Terracotta soldiers are returning to the UK for the first time in a decade and are being exhibited alongside fascinating ancient Chinese artefacts never seen before in the UK at Liverpool’s World Museum.

 

This is a historical tour and a once in a lifetime experience you won’t want to miss! Book now and see some of China’s fascinating history right before your eyes!

Day 2

For over 2,000 years, an underground army of terracotta warriors secretly guarded the tomb of China’s first emperor until a chance discovery in 1974 unlocked the mysteries of a vanished empire. One of the world’s greatest archaeological discoveries, this unmissable exhibition spans 1,000 years of Chinese history, containing objects never before on display in the UK and will shed light on the Emperor’s pursuit of immortality. There will also be free time to explore the city itself.
