A brief visit to the British Museum

On Friday I had some time to kill in the afternoon and as it was rather chilly I decided to have a look at the British Museum (where I hadn’t been for years), forgetting it was Good Friday and therefore heaving. I did find a few quieter sections, though and was able to take a few photos. No chance getting into the temp exhibtions that required booking, though. A few photographic impressions below:

Clockwork horses in Mesopotamia? Surely not.

Reminded me of The Exorcist, for some reason
