Anyone who knows anything about the contributions of William Matthew Flinders Petrie to the world of Egyptology and archaeology will enjoy the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology at the University College, London. I certainly did. Here are some photos I took of various works that struck my fancy during my visits.
Very cute Roman pot with smiling face.
The interior of an exhibition case.
Predynastic pots (yes, that the picture I picked for my site banner).

Lots and lots of pots discovered by Petrie.

Blue Amarna ware.
