House of stolen and plundered goods. Sorry can't help it. I suppose I won't be able to travel the world back in time without them doing such a good job, but I wonder how the Pommies would feel if we strip off part of the wall of St Paul's Cathedral and display it in the museum, like they did to an unidentified Chinese temple. One funny thing I find is that they think we used the big bronze "ding" for drinking wine when it was used for rice during ceremonial ritual. Do they think we're alcoholic or what? ;)

Great place to hang out. I love archeology and looking at things from the past. Best thing is there's no admission fees, except for certain special exhibitions.
