British Museum Treasure Hunt III! Ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome


Easily the most important (and controversial) museum in the U.K., the British Museum is a centuries-old colossus of world artifacts, and the second most visited museum in the world (after the Louvre).

The British Museum has the world's largest collection of Egyptian artifacts and antiquities outside the Egyptian museum in Cairo, including objects of all periods from virtually every site of importance in Egypt and the Sudan. Among the 100,000 or so artifacts are the world-famous (and contested) Rosetta Stone, and 140 mummies and coffins.

With 100,000 objects from the Classical World, including the contested Elgin Marbles, the British Museum collection rivals the host countries' themselves.

We will meet outside the British Museum in the main courtyard by the steps at 2pm. If you come a bit later call me and we should still be able to integrate you into the hunt.

Everyone will be allocated to groups of up to 5 people (or you can make your own groups). You can come in a 'closed' group, come in an open (accepting others) group, or come alone and be put into a new group. No groups can be larger than 5 people (to be fair). You will be given a challenging and rewarding list of clues, riddles and prompts to work out and follow that will help you get the best out of this classic museum. There will not be a 'race', so you can take your time to explore the museum.

There will be a charge of £5 per person for this meetup which you can pay when you arrive. This hunt also counts towards your league score, if you're keeping that up.

After the hunt we will rendezvous at a nearby pub (TBA) for a drink and a natter, and to announce the scores. The meetup should finish around 6:30pm.

Happy hunting!

Special Event Host for this Treasure Hunt !

As usual you will be given a challenging and rewarding list of clues, riddles and prompts compiled by Steve to work out.

Steve will be setting the questions, but I will be briefing the groups.

So, instead of calling Steve if you come late on the day, you can call me on my mobile and I can still integrate you into the hunt.

My number is: 07854 608314.

    Hi guys. Tomorrow's hunt at the British Museum will be hosted by Catherine ('Invitation To'), so look out for her tomorrow. The clues are mine, but Catherine is kindly running the handing out of clues, and answers later. Everything else is as stated :)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
