The British Museum is a must-see stop during a visit to London. It’s full of fascinating exhibits, and I could spend hours there. Unfortunately, I had Mr Munro in tow, and he has a much shorter attention span!
I love the imposing facade of the museum, and even better, entrance is free. No matter what your interest, there will be something to excite you. The mummy section is amazing.
Every time I visit the museum, I like to see the Lindow Man. He’s a blog man, his body found in a peat bog at Lindow, north England in 1984.
This poor man died a particularly gruesome death. He was struck on the head several times and strangled. His throat was also cut, and he was left in the bog. It’s thought he was around 25 years of age and was in good health prior to his death. The bog preserved his hair, skin and many of his internal organs.
You can see and read more about Lindow Man at the museum website.
