British Museum on Friday, vaguely meaning to look at things Viking, but ended up in a gallery devoted to different 'cabinets of curiousities' (the sort of strange random collections rich types used to accumulate before the museum as we understand it came into being - and the subject of the children's fantasy book I'm very slowly writing). And it's fabulous - exactly what you'd want a collection of collections to look like: glass-fronted shelves crammed with ancient books, coins, glassy*-eyed stuffed animals and so forth.
layout I think it's room 49 on the upper level). Anyway, well worth a look if you're around that bit of London.
*The repetition of 'glass' here really annoys me. Still, what's done is done. But it does annoy me.
