London’s hidden Egyptology museum

A few blocks away from the British Museum’s famous mummies lies a wonderful little archaeology museum on the University College, London campus. When Indiana Jones says “that belongs in a museum” to Beloq, the Petrie is the museum you imagine he is referring to. With its mishmash collection of Egyptian jewelry, pottery and artifacts in old display cases, wandering the aisles was like exploring an ancient tomb. We were surprised to find ancient dolls, hedgehog statues and the Tarkhan DressĀ (photo here, description here), the oldest garment in the world.
