These are some pictures I took whilst looking around the Royal Albert Memorial Museum. The exhibitions are actually surprisingly large; there are lots of historical artifacts to blow your mind, as well as an Ancient Egyptian mummy. Hopefully you like the photos I took 🙂
17th Century Civil War armour, used by the soldiers defending Exeter castle.
A wind vane in the shape of a “wyvern” – like a dragon – which was placed on top of Exeter’s North Gate.
The mummy of the fifty year old Shep en-Mut who died around 3,000 years ago. We don’t know who excavated it or exactly where it came from for sure.
Do not want to get on the wrong side of this warrior.
Replica of a Roman dagger scabbard versus the real thing.
Now that is a lot of watches.
A decent pair of flintlock handguns.
These wooden machinery parts were solidified in sand then pulled out to produce a mould so that metal could be cast in the hole that remained.
Exeter was largely rebuilt in the 1700s. Older, dangerous buildings were demolished and sewage systems enhanced to prevent disease outbreaks and fires.
This is one of the most colourful and well preserved floor mosaics from Roman Britain.
If you are wondering what that is, it’s a carrot amphora, used for holding exotic Mediterranean fruits so that Roman soldiers could eat them.
A large collection of Saxon coins from the reigns of multiple Kings.
European craftsmen produced tomahawk axes which were sent to America and then sold to Native Indians.
This tourist souvenir was made by sellers who passed them onto unknowing travellers – they believed the lie that they had historical or spiritual value.
I hope you found these pictures interesting. If you did, share it to a couple of friends who would like it.
If you want more photos from museums, certainly let me know!
