The extraordinary story of the Ming dynasty is to be told in a major exhibition at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh next summer.

The only UK showing of the exhibition Ming: The Golden Empire will include original Ming artefacts from the ­Nanjing Museum, including Chinese National Treasures.

Under the Ming dynasty, which ran between 1368 and 1644, China saw a period of economic strength and dramatic flourishing of the arts.

Dr Gordon Rintoul, director of National Museums ­Scotland, said: “We are thrilled to be bringing a remarkable ­collection of treasures to the UK for the first time. “Visitors to the exhibition will ­experience both a visual feast and a compelling story.”

The exhibition will run from June 27 until October 19.
