Paul Roberts and British Museum Visit
Paul Roberts has kindly been able to offer us an evening Tour of the British Museum, this time to visit the Greek Hellenistic and Roman Halls on the ground floor. Some of the best works of the period of Hellenistic Art and Alexander the Great which inspired so much Roman Art are on display and Paul said that he will also show the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus which has not been visible for years due to its magnificent restoration.
As with all these visits, it is free for Members and Friends but limited to twenty people. We will meet at 5.50 p.m. at the Museum Reception in the Great Court. It will become clear on the night but there is a reason to thank and congratulate Paul this evening. We will follow the visit with a dinner in an Italian Restaurant nearby.
