British Museum and Cambridge

Following my previous post, I did indeed make it to the British Museum, which I've not been to in ages. After I had wandered around for quite a while and seeing a tiny fraction of what is on display, leathellin joined me to look around the current Pompeii and Herculaneum exhibition.

Though I'm familiar with the history of Pompeii, I was astonished by how well preserved may of the artefacts were. While I didn't think there was anything particularly inspired about the organisation of the exhibition, it was well put on, and had a fine collection.

This weekend, I've been near Cambridge visiting my Mum, and enjoying the belated sunshine.
