CJ and I spent an afternoon wandering around the British Museum.  The above is the hall of Egyptian and Assyrian artifacts -- the Rosetta Stone is the fourth picture, one of the sphynxes in the seventh picture has five legs, and in the last picture CJ is doing a Stargate riff pointing at the hieroglyphs on the pillar.

Still in the British Museum -- note the crocodile-skin armor (from Roman-occupied Egypt) in the second picture, a bit of weaponry, and the outside of the Museum itself.
