Description

Relax and take in the beauty of the wonders contained inside the incredible halls of the British Museum, as your guide skillfully navigates you through the seventy galleries containing Athenian marbles, Egyptian Mummies and Anglo Saxon treasures. You will see the real Rosetta Stone that played an essential role in the decipherment of Egyptian hieroglyphs. Another highlight is the enormous Parthenon Frieze. Just one meter high and 160 meters long, this incredible sculpture once stood in the Acropolis in Athens and is one of the most important surviving relics of classical Greece.

Further highlights are the Egyptian Rooms, with an impressive collection of mummies. Your guide will explain the importance of death and the afterlife in Ancient Egyptian culture as you witness this incredible piece of human history in person. The museum also contains a wonderful selection of artifacts representing the Anglo Saxon culture, such as those found at the burial sites of Sutton Hoo. Your guide will share the amazing story of how these objects survived the centuries and the grave robbers, making them an improbable find.
