Free Tonight?

gallery61.jpg As is their wont on Thursdays and Fridays, many galleries of the British Museum are open until 8:30 tonight. It's a good time to see the newly opened Egyptian Room 61, featuring the wall paintings of Nebamun on display together for the first time. We had a look yesterday and the panels are not only things of great beauty, but collected together, are also as engaging as a good comic book. If you don't mind jumping from 1350 BC to 2006 AD, there's also a screening of the acclaimed documentary Iraq in Fragments in the Stevenson Lecture Theatre at 6:30.
