The Ming Dynasty brought dramatic advances to China. Between 1400-1450AD, one ruling family turned the country into a global superpower, turned Beijing into its capital city, and built the 'Forbidden City'.

You can learn about this exciting period of Chinese history at the British Museum, whose exhibition, runs between the 18th September - 5th January 2015. Tickets cost £16.50 for adults, £13 concessions, and are free for under 16s. It will showcase all sorts of art the period, such as jewellery, painting, furniture, sculpture, and textiles. Particular highlights include a Cloisonné jar, gilded bronze Buddha, presentation sword, and lacquer box.

There will also be a lecture series looking at roles of imperial and princely courts in China. There will be three talks given between the 9th - 11th October, covered by thirty international scholars, and costs £45.
