Rosetta Stone

Rosetta Stone @ British Museum

The largest empire in history “collected” (some would say stole) many significant pieces of history. Then, in the early 1960s, Britain created a law preventing the return of anything in their collections to the various countries of origin. If it’s legal it must be ethical, right?

Anyway, people can come see these items for free so that’s something. The problem is that if you visit, like we did, on a rainy day in early August things can get ridiculously crowded. Picture the Mona-Lisa-in-the-Louvre crowded.
