the rosetta stone

I'm off the continent towards Taiwan today, so it's pictures from the archives.

The Rosetta stone. You walk into the Egypt wing (probably one of the more popular parts of the museum, especially the mummies) and it's the first thing you see. It's much larger than I would have thought it to be, actually. What a piece of history, this rock that broke the code of hieroglyphics.
