The BM is currently running a series of exhibitions on world rulers.
The first in the series was The First Emperor (China’s Terracotta Army) and this was followed by Hadrian: Empire and Conflict. The current exhibition is Shah ‘Abbas: The Remaking of Iran.
The exhibition has been very popular and it is accompanied by educational resources, with schoolgroups being able to attend for free. There are teaching materials for Keystage 2 (7-11 year olds) and Keystage 3 (11 to 14) – as well as a presentation higlighting some of the objects in the exhibition – posted on the site.
