The Museum of London

Shot with Olympus E500
The Museum of London was open late on Thursday, as it is each first Thursday of every month. On this occasion there was a medieval theme. This often overlooked museum is always worth a visit, although for the near future the entire ground floor is being refurbished. We were treated to a fascinating tour and talk by the curator, and I learned that the first recorded written name from the London area is from around 600 AD, and was "Tatbert", scratched on a bone. I wonder if he had to work in a cubicle. Note the medieval security pass.

Thanks to you, Ham, I visited the Museum of London and it was well worth the visit. A chunk of it was under construction but it's still a very interesting place.

Wonderful image in both composition and content. I can almost hear the music. And I can certainly feel that cold hard stare.

Is that a slim Victoria Wood, seated? Look again.
