London 2011 - British Museum

To be fair, this should be the British Museum Ancient Egypt and Near East Collection, but that was a bit much for a title. I love the museum (free to anyone from a country where they've stolen stuff that's on display**) especially all the ancient artifacts*, so I spent my short time in this wing, much of it checking out the insane detail on the Assyrian reliefs. So, enjoy the photos and the snark. FBers go HERE for pics!

* Or, as I normally refer to it, "all the cool shit Britain stole from everyone else"
** I.e., the entire planet Earth. Visitors from other planets have to pay, though.

Also known as the museum where you could see the rosetta stone if there weren't so many people taking pictures of it.
