Treasures of Ancient Egypt

January 10th, 2014 (09:19 pm)

Have just started watching the first episode of this, and...wow. So far it's rather fascinating and marvellous and wonderful. I've always been fascinated by the imagery of ancient Egypt (it's part of the reason why Sarah & I went there on honeymoon), and this is a great programme exploring the history of that art.

Have decided that it'd be interesting to visit Kingston Lacy, which was shown in the very opening of the episode. Also, the Petrie Museum, which despite my interest I've never yet been to (indeed I wasn't aware of it until someone who works there appeared as a contestant on Only Connect a few years back...)

Cool

I watched that, too - it was really interesting - and made me think a visit to Kingston Lacy would be good, too.
