I buzzed into London today to spend the afternoon at the British Museum. It was most impressive, especially the Near Eastern exhibits on Egypt and Assyria.
The exterior was British enough.
The interior was quite different. Sort of domed with a restaurant in the center. The interior reading room below the restaurant resembled the Jedi temple in Episode III.
Here's one of the Egyptian exhibits on Ramses II, one of the most powerful Pharoah's.
Very Assryian statue is seen here. I probably came up to this critter's thigh. It was quite large.
