Country folk visit the big city!

We had a city day today (due poor weather!) and this entailed heading to Manchester with the promise of seeing dinosaurs, and embracing cultural delights! I put on my city trousers, but forgot my avant garde city 'flat cap', oh well next time!

Highlights were the Manchester Museum and The Lowry - think that about covers it!

Shabtis, or servant figurines (approx 4"-6" tall), placed in tombs to act as workers for the deceased in the afterlife. Their inscriptions held important information of the titles held by their owners. They were one of the first 'tourist' souvenirs nabbed from tombs due to their small size and colourful designs.
Shells! Lots of shells...........

News Flash - Horses evolved from terriers! I don't remember that from school! In effect thats what its saying? Isn't it!?

Not sure city life is for me..................too crazy.....................
