For those who like to plan ahead... Or have been waiting for this news for over 2000 years.

The culture secretary has confirmed this week that a selection of China's famous Terracotta Warriors are to be exhibited at the World Museum, Liverpool, from Febuary 2018.

The warriors were last displayed at the British Museum in 2007 and at Edinburgh in 1985.

  • More than 8,000 life-sized Terracotta Warriors have been unearthed in burial pits at the tomb complex of Emperor, Qin Shi Huang, since 1974 near Xi' in North West China
  • Each warrior has individual hair and facial features and archaeologists have located more than 600 pits around the emperor's mausoleum, covering an area of 22 sq miles (35km)
  • New discoveries are continually coming to light, which indicate that Emperor Qin wished to take the entire universe with him into the afterlife.
  • The tradition of burial practice was continued by the emperor's successors in the later Han Dynasty
