British Museum

On Monday December 1st Eagles went to the British Museum as part of their topic on Ancient Egypt. We spent the morning looking at the Egyptian galleries, the highlight of which was the Rosetta Stone. We also saw lots of mummies, false tomb walls and shabti. After lunch we looked at other galleries in the museum. Mrs Holt’s group’s favourite was the Money gallery, where we saw a 20 billion dollar note from Zimbabwe and learned that many of the pound coins in circulation are fake.
