The First Emperor – China’s Terracotta Army

I heard yesterday that the British Museum in London is holding the first exhibition ever of the Terracotta Army outside of China. How excited am I!

I shall make a date with myself to visit London in the Autumn, as I’ve also heard that Tutankhamun will be paying a visit as well. My cup runneth over :mrgreen:

  1. I’m a twit. I just left the comment I meant to leave here – that these just amaze me – on your WW post. Oops.

  2. Definitely loking forwad to both myself. I was old enough to enjy the last visit of the Tutenkhamun treasures in the 70s. Ohkay so no mask this time but it should be good

  3. I read a book about these years ago, and I’m so excited!

    I’ve heard that though his mask won’t be here, the rest will, so I’ll forgive them for that :wink:

  4. What a fantastic opportunity!

    Did you hear about that German performance artist a while back who disguised himself as one of the soldiers?

  5. I hadn’t heard about that. Sounds as if it should be ridiculous. Did he look convincing?!

  6. I am not sure that i approve of moving them, it doesnt seem quite right :???:

  7. They’re actually only moving a select few, and I watched a documentary on it, they are just so careful with things like this. I wouldn’t get to see them otherwise :sad:

  8. You could always go to China? I suppose nobody would get see dinosaurs bones if somebody hadn’t dug them up and put them in a museum.

    Also i presume they will get money to keep them in good condition so that is a good thing!

  9. I don’t think somehow I will ever be able to afford to get to China, hence my excitement they’re coming here!

  10. My friends brother is moving to China, so hopefully when i start the world travels i might make it there!

  11. You’ll have to send me a postcard then!
