“The British Museum is a museum in London dedicated to human history and culture. Its permanent collection, numbering some 8 million works, is among the largest and most comprehensive in existence and originates from all continents, illustrating and documenting the story of human culture from its beginnings to the present.” — Wikipedia
The British Museum is so huge!!! One day is probably not enough to go through each artifact and exhibits… especially if you’re into this kind of stuff. The museum has three floors: upper, ground and lower. I went to the museum around 3PM and due to the limited time, I only managed to see the ground floor. To be honest, going through their collection in a short amount of time got me so overwhelmed. So if you’re planning to visit, condition yourself!
The heads of these statues were cut off when Catholicism (or Christianity) became the official religion of the people.
