The British Museum...

On Tuesday afternoon Natalie and I continued our day of culture and headed to The British Museum in London's glitzy Bloomsbury.
 
The British Museum is fab. It's a public museum dedicated to human history, art and culture. Its permanent collection of eight million works is among the largest and most comprehensive in existence. It documents the story of human culture from its beginnings to the present. REgions it covers are Sudan, Egypt, Greece, Rome, the Ancient Near and Far East and the Americas, New Guinea, Madagascar, Romania, Guatemala and Indonesia and... the UK.
 
The stuff they have there is fab and of course there is always a discussion to be had over the disputed items including The Parthenon Marbles (Elgin Marbles), the Rosetta Stone, and Hoa Hakananai'a.
 
We had a fab time.
