Product Description:
The British Museum: The House Itself Video (VHS/DVD). This program covers the origins and history of the British Museum: the Act of Parliament in 1753 that created a national repository; the private collections that constituted the first treasures; the architectural background and purpose of the Greek temple; and the philosophy of displays. The program also offers a guide to some of the museum's greatest treasures: the Egyptian collection, the Lindisfarne Gospels, the Parthenon frieze, paintings of Blake and Turner, the manuscript of Alice in Wonderland, the Celtic gold torques from Ipswich-an introduction to what is arguably the greatest museum in the world.
