British Museum Expanding Space for Terracotta Warriors and Hadrian

I see the British Museum is planning to expand its exhibit space to accomodate a new tour of the Terracotta Warriors. I saw them years ago at an exhibit at the De Young Museum in San Francisco. This time, though, the exhibit will include some of the interesting figures of acrobats, scribes, and animals that have been recently excavated.

I was also thrilled to note that following the Chinese exhibit, the British Museum is planning to mount a major exhibition about the Roman Emperor Hadrian. I may need to plan a return visit to London for that one!
