British Museum

Entrance to the British Museum

Interior "grounds"

Big Egyptian stuff

Assyrian lion hunt

Babylonian property marker

Rosetta stone and me

Elgin Marbles; they had a very defensive pamphlet about
rights to the Elgin Marbles, how they came by them, why
they are not going to give them back to the Greeks, etc.

Paleolithic handaxes, always a favorite

Bust of Augustus, from the Roman tour

Roman-Briton I have always liked

James Smith and Sons umbrellas, an icon
