China's Terracotta Warriors are marching to World Museum Liverpool

Taking place in 2018, this exhibition will be the first time in more than 10 years that these spectacular warriors from the tomb of China's First Emperor, Qin Shihuangdi, have been brought to the UK.

2018年,英国利物浦世界博物馆将举办秦始皇兵马俑大型特展。这是时隔10余年之后,这群来自中国首位皇帝秦始皇的陵墓中的壮观勇士首次重返英国。

Running for 8 months from February to October 2018, visitors to World Museum will be given a glimpse into the extraordinary story of Qin Shihuangdi, the First Emperor of China. His vast burial site and tomb complex was discovered near Xi'an in North West China in 1974, and the story of the tomb’s Terracotta Warriors will be displayed alongside important artefacts and research relating to the formative years of the Chinese nation, from the pre-unification Qin Kings (307 to 221 BC) to the First Emperor's legacy in the Han Dynasty (206BC to 220AD).

本次展览自2018年2月持续至10月,在长达8个月的时间里,游客们有机会在利物浦世界博物馆中近距离感受中国第一位皇帝秦始皇的非凡故事。1974年间,他的巨大墓地和墓葬群在中国西北地区西安市附近被发现。此次利物浦展览在展示墓葬内兵马俑故事的同时,也将展示与中华民族形成时代相关的重要文物和研究, 包括了从秦始皇统一前(公元前307年至公元前221年)到汉朝第一位皇帝的遗产(公元前206年至公元220年)。

This exhibition will be unprecedented in the UK, offering a new perspective on China's history. Spanning three periods of more than 500 years, it is set to include a number of objects that have never been on show in this country before including material from museums and institutes from across Shaanxi Province, excavated over the last 40 years from the Imperial Mausoleum and selected tombs.

本次展览将带来了解中国历史的全新视角,在全英范围内都尚无先例。即将展出的展品来自中国陕西省的博物馆及研究所,这些文物均是在过去40年间从秦始皇陵及其中墓穴中挖掘出的。展品横跨三个时期、500多年历史,其中很多都是首次来到英国。

These spectacular artefacts dating from 307 BC to the 2nd century AD, along with remarkable recent archaeological discoveries, not only shed light on the pursuit of immortality and how China's Emperors prepared for the afterlife, but also help us to understand more about everyday life in China over two thousand years ago.

壮观的文物,加之新近令人印象深刻的考古发现,不仅展示了中国皇帝对不朽的追求以及如何为来世做准备,也将使英国观众更多地了解两千年前中国的日常生活。

World Museum's Terracotta Warriors exhibition will be a major part of Liverpool's 2018 celebrations, marking 10 years since the city held the title of European Capital of Culture 2008.

2018年,利物浦将迎来获评“欧洲文化之都”十周年的纪念年,并将举办系列庆祝活动,此次世界博物馆的兵马俑展也是庆祝活动的重要组成部分。
