Only The Shiny
The museum also suffers from a magpie like tendency to chow only shiny objects. Instead of trying to give an impression of how our ancestors lived they try to dazzle you with hoards and gold of "possibly ritual" significance.
Not Worth A Visit
If you're interested in prehistory, the lives of our forebears or exhibits related to bushcraft then I seriously recommend avoiding the British museum. Sad to say but it isn't what it should be and was a massive dissapointment.
