Discover a 15th Century Dynasty

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, Ming: 50 Years That Changed China 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.
