On Saturday I met up with my friend Caroline, who is going to show me where all the museums are. So yesterday we went to The Ashmolean Museum. To be very very honest, I don't normally like looking round them, I don't go much into history, but having a friend with me, who I think, thinks on the same lines as me, helped a lot.
The first section we came to was all about Knossos in Crete,this was quite interesting, I could actually relate to this, as my husband and I visited there a few years back. Unfortunately I do not have any photos, either from the holiday or yesterday. Didn't realize until later that you could take photos!! In the museum that is.
The second section was the Ancient Egypt - Dynastic Period. I actually found this a pleasure to walk around, with the jewellery and little pots etc.
These next two items I adore, I just love the rich colours. They are made by Egyptian Faience, which you can read all about in the link.
We then moved on to the Arts, where we had a quick look through,a very small section of the displays and it was very quick as were in real need of a coffee. We will be returning at some point though.
Made our way to the covered market, for a well deserved cafe and panini..!!!
