Friday 29 July
We visited the British Museum  in the morning – a great collection of items from ancient times especially from Egypt, Greece, Italy, Mesopotamia and Crete. The first item viewed was the Rosetta Stone. The Elgin Marbles are another major attraction.
There was also special collection of Australian art since the 1940s as well as an exhibition of Aboriginal woven bags and in the forecourt there was an exhit on Australian flora.

We then set out to explore the east end of London - St Paul's Cathedral,
Tower Bridge,
Old Bailey
and Petticoat Lane (now Middlesex Street) in Whitechapel (the latter three sites mentioned in the trial of Uriah Moses).
We also passed the building knicknamed 'The Gherkin' at 30 St Mary Axe.
