british museum

The British Museum, London, is an incredible museum full of artifacts that tell the stories of civilizations over thousands of years.

My eldest son is doing a school project on ancient Egypt, and has become really caught up in finding out more. We took him to the museum yesterday, so he could see the artifacts that he has been told about, seen on websites and books for himself. Ok it's not as good as going to Egypt, but as that is out of the question, at the moment, this was almost as good.

Apart from what is on display, the building itself is glorious. The new coovered section, the great court, takes my breath every time I go in there. The architecture is stunning, and it transforms the museum into an even better building than it was.

Is there a quilt pattern that could be found in the roof or windows?
