Dorchester, UK - 1st July 2007

By: drakie

Well it is now time to say goodbye to all my friends but first I will tell you where I went last week.

Well firstly, we had several coffees as you do, then went to two Exhibitions Tutenkhamun and Terracotta Warriors.

King Tuts I think was the best, very interesting details and a great exhibition, I learnt quite a lot here.

THE TUTANKHAMUN EXHIBITION
Dorchester


This World Heritage Exhibition, currently shown in Dorchester, is the original Tutankhamun Exhibition established following the the success of the Treasures of Tutankhamun Exhibition at the British Museum London. The Exhibition is unique for its innovative approach. It features Tutankhamun's major treasures meticulously recreated, wherever possible, in their original materials, and has been extensively featured in television programmes and major documentaries on Tutankhamun throughout the world.

In addition, the ante-chamber and burial chamber Tutankhamun's tomb have been accurately recreated together with all the tomb furniture and treasures making it possible for you to experience the wonder of discovery and enter the tomb just as Howard Carter did when he discovered it in 1922.

The Tutankhamun Exhibition in Dorchester is also the only exhibition outside Egypt where you can see an exact anatomical recreation of Tutankhamun's mummy. The mummy took over two years of research and experimentation to recreate, following x-rays and measurements of Tutankhamun's mummy which still lies in his tomb and which cannot be seen by the public.

During its twenty years the Exhibition has been seen by visitors from all over Britain and many parts of the world exceeding most attendance records.

The Tutankhamun Exhibition features amongst many wonderful treasures: The Golden Mask of Tutankhamun, The Golden Throne of Tutankhamun, Tutankhamun's mummy. The Golden figure of Tutankhamun the Harpooner. A selection of Tutankhamun's jewels is also displayed.



Then we went to Terracotta Warriors, and apparantly we could not take any photos inside which was a shame but .. naughty my host managed to get some in the Warriors, not on purpose she did not actually see the signs, she did in King Tut but not in Warriors as she kept falling ove her crutch as she is still not used to it and carrying two bunnies, camera, bag and crutch can be quite critical.  This was interesting but only a few scattered about so we were not too keen on this but interesting just the same.





 


A STUNNING EXHIBITION OF THE CHINESE TERRACOTTA ARMY FROM THE CHIN DYNASTY AT THE TERRACOTTA WARRIORS MUSEUM - DORCHESTER UK

The Terracotta Army of China is a spectacular NEW exhibition which brings together all the wonder of the discovery of the many treasures of Chin She Huang Di, the first Emperor of China. He conquered and united China to become its First Emperor. He built the Great Wall and amassed great works of art. A megalomaniac, he sought the secret of immortality. 70,000 workers built his tomb filled with legendary treasures. His 3000 wives and concubines followed him to the grave.

Over 6000 fantastic life-size clay warriors protected his tomb. The Famous Terracotta Army - one of the wonders of the ancient world. The Exhibition features a spectacular group of these warriors which have been special created in China by the conservation technicians who preserve and restore the warriors after excavation.

Also featured are fabulous recreations of Ching She Huang Di, his uniformed officers, and the life-size clay warriors.The dramatic audio presentations and lighting bring the whole experience stunningly to life.

The exhibition has been exhibited in Jersey and at various centres in Britain. It is at present at The Terracotta Warriors Museum, Dorchester, UK.



And at last I said goodbye to Lila Bunz, and met a new voyager, Purple Bun who is getting ready to leave home for the very first time to go to alleycat in Israel so it was nice to meet her.    3 Buns together and all girls what a relief after the boys.

Time to say goodbye , not enough time to go to the Trams, ahhh another time maybe.  I think my host will miss me she had a tear outside the Post Office.!!!
