Today was a world school field trip day to the British Museum. We took in the current Viking exhibition, setting up our travels through Denmark and Norway later this month. The museum had a great kid’s scavenger hunt for the exhibit, though Boy was uninterested. Then we covered the highlights of Ancient History, with the Rosetta Stone, Elgin Marbles, Sutton Hoo burial, cuneiform tablets and Hammurabi’s law code. All enhanced by the soundtrack of “can we go, yet?” He did begrudgingly enjoy the hands on activity on the history of money, but was more interested in spending his allowance at the shop.
So we wrapped up early and stopped by the park on the way back for a run around.
