I've been obsessed with ancient Egypt since I was 6 and I learned about it at school. At that age I could write my name and address in hieroglyphics... Geeky huh? I still love it and I really enjoy watching tv shows and reading books on the subject.
I enjoyed this day, really really enjoyed it, and even though I know it's not everyone's cup of tea I thought you might like to see some of my photographs! I took 150 that day so I won't put them all up haha.
How beautiful are these pieces? The detail in everything, especially the stone amazes me. Considering this occurred over 2000 years ago, it is astonishing. We wandered around for two or three hours and it was a great wee day.
We walked around the public part of the museum too, which is a mix of taxidermy, paintings, sculptures, transport and history (recent and ancient). I loved it! Wish I could do things like this more often.
Do you like museums? Or any particular part of history?
