This was in the evening rather than overnight, but it was very peaceful, actually!

We went out for a fine celebratory birthday meal this evening. I'm sure everyone is surprised she chose the restaurant with a suit of armour in the corridor ;)

I've been trying hard not to add much to our piles of unread books, but we made the fatal mistake of spending time in Blackwells book shop in Oxford yesterday!

Here's this weekend's haul (only half is from Blackwells - the other half is from the Ashmolean):

+John Patterson Some of it's in a different order than previous editions ...

+Aakheperure Merytsekhmet We dedicated an entire wall of the back living room to shelves in order to house the eight boxes of Egyptology and archaeology books I inherited from a friend's father-in-law. Sacrifices must be made for the books.

If that one wants your shoes too, I suggest you hand them over.

Took the birthday girl to Framlingham castle, as (somehow) neither of us had ever been there, despite her fascination with Tudor history.  It's a pretty cool place to visit!

So glad to see +Margaret Patterson with SLR in hand, I now know I'm not the only one who does this! Glad you had a suitably archaeological experience on this "Historic" occasion!

The Tomb of Kha and Merit

+Margaret Patterson gave a great short talk at the Essex Egyptology Group meeting on Sunday, all about the tomb of Kha and Merit, and the often beautiful items from their tomb that are on display at the Turin Museum. With some lovely photos too!
 
Sunday's Essex Egyptology Group meeting included short talks from members - this one is my one, about Kha and Merit (whose grave goods are in the Turin Egyptian Museum).
