A new project…

As I mentioned last week, we’ve moved offices. And (joy of joys) I can see the entrance to (and the roof of) the British Museum from my desk. Well, I’ve thought of something to do with this amazing opportunity: I’m going to go through the hundred objects in the BBC Radio 4’s fantastic 2010 series A History of the World.

First up: the Mummy of Hornedjitef, an Egyptian priest who died around 250 BC. I’m listening to the show now, and very much enjoying it. To quote Ahdaf Soueif in this first episode: “It reminds the world of our common heritage”.

So now I’ll head to the museum to see the mummy. And then I’ll go home and do some reading. Life is good.
