Superbreak offers package from just £57pp
Next Friday, 13 September The First Emperor – China’s Terracotta Arm opens at the British Museum in a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition that will explore one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of the 20th century and provide an insight into China’s First Emperor, Qin Shihuangdi, and his legacy. Short break specialist Superbreak (www.superbreak.com) has a range of packages that combine overnight accommodation with a timed entrance ticket to the exhibition.
Objects featured in the exhibition, which runs from 13 September 07 to 6 April 08, will include a number of the world-famous terracotta warriors from Xi'an, China, which were buried alongside the First Emperor in readiness for the afterlife, as well as some of the most striking recent discoveries made on the site. In introducing the idea of a unified state and effectively creating China in 221BC, the First Emperor of Quin created what is today the oldest surviving political entity in the world. How that state has survived, developed and is viewed today will be explored through events, lectures and debates around the exhibition.
