ancient world under one roof. And the most fact admission to museum is free because it's a heritage of mankind,

The British Museum is museum in London dedicated to human history and culture. Its permanent collection, numbering some 8 million works, is among the largest and most comprehensive in existence and originates from all continents, illustrating and documenting the story of human culture from its beginnings to the present.

British Museum is huge so I had to chose what I want to see my decision was Ancient Egypt because I am interested in Egyptian medicine ( especially mummies).

The mummy

It was made 4000 years BC.



Skulls from 8th century BC.
I love mosaics very much so put some of them . All they came from Ancient Greece. They were made in 5th century BC.





I will be in London in the autumn this and next year too , so I definitely come back here to see more. 
It is amazing place and worth visiting.

  4. One thing about the British stealing things from all over the world, they have at least been preserved well.

    The weather looked nice.

  5. I was going to say that, too, Andrew. And also that they are generous in making them available for all to see free. This museum is just incredible.

    1. Cynthia, definitely it's true But up to the point because in my point of you each nation has right to preserve their heritage.
