LIVERPOOL & THE TERRACOTTA ARMY

The spectacular warriors will be shown alongside other loans from China never before seen in the UK, shedding light on how Emperors prepared for the after life during the first 1000 years of Chinese history. Why Liverpool? Well, among its many other historic distinctions, the city is the home to the UK’s oldest Chinese community.
