Life has a habit of going full circle and that is certainly the case with Corrina: a volunteer with the Ethnology team. When she returned to the UK having taught English in Japan for fourteen years, Corrina revisited what she had originally had an interest in before her move, and looked towards the Walker Art Gallery, which she studied as part of her dissertation.

Save the date! Tickets for World Museum’s unmissable exhibition, China’s First Emperor and the Terracotta Warriors, will go on general sale at 10am on Thursday 9 November.
Showcasing incredible finds from one of the world’s greatest archaeological discoveries, the exhibition spans almost 1,000 years of Chinese history; from the conflicts and chaos of the Warring States period, to the achievements and legacy of the Qin and Han Dynasties. At the heart of the exhibition is China’s First Emperor, Qin Shi Huang, his massive burial site and his world-famous terracotta warriors.
Running from 9 February to 28 October 2018, the exhibition will feature more than 180 artefacts from museums across Shaanxi Province in north-west China, many of which have never been seen in the UK before. These spectacular objects shed led on the pursuit of immortality in ancient China, and help us to understand more about everyday life in the country more than two thousand years ago.
Tickets for ‘China’s First Emperor and the Terracotta Warriors’ are available to book from 10am on Thursday 9 November, priced from £14.50 for adults, £13.00 for concessions and £5.50 for children aged between 6 and 17 years. Entry to the exhibition is free to children aged 5 years and under.
Can’t wait to get your hands on tickets? New and existing members of National Museums Liverpool will enjoy free, unlimited entry to the exhibition, plus an exclusive online ticket pre-sale period from Monday 6th November.
