Chinese History Exhibition to Open in London

Chinese History Exhibition to Open in London

A British Museum exhibition called Ming: 50 years that changed China is set to open at the London venue in the autumn.

This will track the time from 1400 to 1450 in China, which was an important part of the nation's history.

Visitors will be able to explore the exhibition starting September 18th when it opens in the Sainsbury Exhibitions Gallery.

It's said to be the first time an exhibition has explored the big changes in culture and society that made Beijing the capital during this period and were linked to the creation of the Forbidden City.

The exhibition, in place until January 4th, covers themes of life at court, culture, trade, people's beliefs, diplomacy and the military.

It will feature exhibits such as items linked to each of the four emperors who ruled between 1400 and 1450 - a sword belonging to the Yongle Emperor, for example.

Consider London hotels as ideal accommodation if you want to visit this sure-to-be compelling exhibition after it opens in September.
