From Roman Britain

Posted by Tory Historian Friday, October 08, 2010 ,

Tory Historian went to the British Museum this evening as it was late opening. Unusually, the Mediaeval Galleries were open (possibly because there is no big exhibition on at the moment) though the fate of the Hinton St Mary mosaic pavement is still unknown. TH distinctly remembers seeing most of that floor laid out on the landing of the BM staircase. Then it was taken apart and the medallion with Christ's face put back. Where is the rest of it?

Still, there were some beautiful things to see and some utterly delightful ones like the big face jug from 2nd Century Roman Colchester.
