|Our newest board game!|
Now, this may not 'seem' like a beginning to a post supposedly on the British Museum, but it IS.
|The Wonder at Halikarnassos!|
There are seven wonders to be constructed (7 different boards shuffled out to the players). One of them is the Mausoleum at Halikarnasos!
And thus the link!.....Because on the Greek Eye Opener tour at the British Museum, you get to see some of the fragments remaining from Halikarnassos (which was mostly destroyed in an earthquake).
So, for you Felix, here are some of the pictures I took of some of the pieces that still remain from that wonder, and which are there in the British Museum!

Felix, if you want to read more about it, there are great posts on the British Museum's website. Check out these links:
