This is not a post about philosophy, theology, economics, or a critique of culture. I probably have too much built up in my system and need to write a post about something a little more theory oriented; however, I took some great pictures while at the British Museum and have to share them. Because this blog loosely circulates issues with religion, it is still on topic, though.
Some of you may be interested in archaeology, textual traditions, and the ancient near east. If so, these pictures will certainly be a treat for you. While my training isn’t near expert level, I did take several classes in which we read ancient near eastern creation myths, flood myths, and legal texts. Seeing some of these in person was a great experience.
Plus, while the British Museum is famously crowded because it is free and full of amazing artifacts, almost no one seemed to care about the sections these were housed in. While that’s a bit saddening, it did make for a much more relaxing time in the museum!
Hopefully you enjoyed these pics despite the cellphone quality!
P.S. I also saw a 15th century grenade launcher 🙂
