Hey Chris - Has anyone mentioned the Hunterian Museum
at the Royal College of Surgeons yet? We plan to go
next June - it comes highly recommended by one of my
work colleagues who lives in London: Not sure where it is
in relation to the British Museum, but everything's
relatively easy to get to in London. Also, the British
Museum has a collection of Roman silver found in a
field in England called the Mildenhall silver - I
could have spent all day looking at it and the Celtic
antiquities. So much to do... and so many great Indian
restaurants to discover!!

Yours in jealousy -
