One of the largest loan exhibitions ever to be staged at the British Museum
Will contain the most loans ever agreed for an overseas exhibition by Xian
Show will run for six months and is the first temporary exhibition to take place in the historic round reading room
This major loan exhibition will present a reassessment of one of the best known discoveries in world archaeology, the Terracotta Army of the First Emperor of China. Some of these famous figures have travelled abroad since the surprise discovery of the site in 1974, but no loan exhibition has ever assembled so many important objects, including newly discovered pieces which have never left China before.
