London in your lunch hour
A whistlestop tour of the British Museum
Time Out's guide to making the most out of those precious 60 minutes starts with the essential highlights of the British Museum. You can't say you've been to the BM unless you've seen the Rosetta Stone, found in Room 4. It dates from around 332BC and its inscription – in hieroglyphic, demotic and Greek – is a holy decree affirming the royal cult of the 13-year-old Ptolemy V.
The British Museum has looked after our history for so many years and we are very greatful.Now we have our own world class Museum where they realy belong.so on behalf of everyone who is greek & from all of our hearts please return them to there rightful place. Thank You Vicky Stamou.
'...our nation's great talent for plunder ..' such false shame ..more like a boast said with arrogance. Can you imagine in the unlikely event if Britain were to ever return(objects, people, knowledge, ideas) all that it has stolen from its former colonies -how revealingly backward it would be?
