A Touch of the Greek

 
In London today for a couple of meetings at the British Library and a quick meander around the British Museum in between, which is why there is a dose of the Greek for you all today. The adorable young man above is, predictably, in the galleries of Greek sculpture. But the red clay vases below are in one of my favourite parts of the Museum, the Enlightenment Gallery, an old-fashioned assemblage celebrating the great antiquarians, those who put together the museum's earliest collections together, everything from shells and taxidermy to Buddhas and Roman coins... and pretty young men on pots!
