How to make 2,000-year-old-bread
In AD 79, a baker put his loaf of bread into the oven. Nearly 2,000 years later it was found during excavations in Herculaneum. The British Museum asked Giorgio Locatelli to recreate the recipe as part of his culinary investigations for the cinema production 'Pompeii Live from the British Museum'. In response to the many interesting, thoughtful and sometimes amusing comments we've received for this video, we've asked Paul Roberts, the curator of our Pompeii exhibition 'Life and Death in Herculaneum', to give us the academic background: It was one of the Romans’ great boasts at table that they could serve white flour bread at fine banquets (at normal tables they might well have eaten poorer grades of wheat or other grains, such as spelt or barley, and even beans, lentils or chestnuts.) You will see that Giorgio scores the loaf: I’ve examined lots of the loaves and I am convinced that they are scored. It's important to remember that the loaves survived because they were carbonised. They have, in effect, shrunk somewhat from their original form, because of the loss of liquid on exposure to the sudden blast of heat form Vesuvius – conservatively estimated at 400 degrees centigrade. All other foodstuffs – figs, beans, grain etc are noticeably smaller than they ought to be – and there is no reason the same shouldn’t be true of bread. This could explain why the scoring and the stamp seem implausibly clear – in effect they may have contracted to a smaller (and in the case of the stamp, more legible) form. This carbonisation must, I think, be taken into account and means the loaves when complete and fresh from the oven may have looked very different from how we see them now – not just in colour.

The oldest portrait in the British Museum (probably) | Curator's Corner Season 2 Episode 1
Over many years, Curator Alexandra Fletcher has formed a particularly strong bond with one of the… older people in the British Museum. In fact, she was one of the first to see his face in over 9,500 years. The Jericho Skull is arguably the oldest portrait in the British Museum – a human skull from the ancient city of Jericho which had plaster applied to it to form a type of early facial reconstruction. The Jericho Skull is fascinating to look at, but since being discovered in 1953, archaeologists weren’t able to find out much more about this man – until now. Using CT scanning, 3D printing and facial reconstruction, Alexandra and her team have finally been able to reveal the man behind the plaster.

Gayer-Anderson Cat - British Museum - June 2016
The Gayer-Anderson Cat is a bronze Ancient Egyptian statue of a cat, which dates from the Late Period (around 664–332 BC). Style and detail The sculpture is known as the Gayer-Anderson cat after Major Robert Grenville Gayer-Anderson who, together with Mary Stout Shaw, donated it to the British Museum. The statue is a representation of the cat-goddess Bastet. The cat wears jewellery and a protective wadjet amulet. The earrings and nose ring on the statue may not have always belonged to the cat. A scarab appears on the head and a winged scarab is shown on the chest. The statue is 42 cm high and 13 cm wide. A copy of the statue is kept in the Gayer-Anderson Museum, located in Cairo. Construction Detail of the head The statue is not as well preserved as it appears. X-rays taken of the sculpture reveal that there are cracks that extend almost completely around the centre of the cat's body and only an internal system of strengthening prevents the cat's head from falling off. The repairs to the cat were carried out by Major Gayer-Anderson who was a keen restorer of antiquities in the 1930s. When he bought it, the surface of the cat was "covered with a heavy coating of crystalline verdigris and crisp flakes of red patina" which he carefully removed by chipping away at it. The cat was manufactured by the lost wax method where a wax model is covered with clay, or clay and water, until there is sufficient thickness. The clay can then be fired in a kiln and the wax flows out. The now hollow mould can be refilled with bronze. In this case the metal was 85% copper, 13% tin, 2% arsenic with a 0.2% trace of lead. The remains of the pins that held the wax core can still be seen using x-rays. The original metalworkers would have been able to create a range of colours on a bronze casting and the stripes on the tail are due to metal of a differing composition. It is also considered likely that the eyes contained stone or glass decorations.

Top 10 priceless items stolen from india by british | #viralnews | #viralvideo | #viralfacts
The finest jewels and the precious treasures that Indian rulers once boasted was cold-bloodedly looted by the invaders, especially the British. Sad but true, today none of these invaluable artifacts, jewels and relics lie within the geographical borders of India. here are 10 such priceless Indian artifacts which were stolen by the British from the Indian soil: Kohinoor Diamond, Sultanganj Buddha, Nassak Diamond, The Sword and Ring of Tipu Sultan: After the heroic death of the Tiger of Mysore – Tipu Sultan, the British forces took away the ring and sword of Tipu Sultan and looted his arsenal. Both the war trophies of Tipu Sultan were displayed in the British Museum till 2004 after which Vijay Mallya placed the winning bid of £175,000 for the Sultan’s sword, and brought it back to the Indian soil. Successively, he also bought 30 other war items (at an £1 million investment) owned by Tipu Sultan from the UK auction houses including carved quivers. Flintlock pistols cannon, and other personal items. The Golden Throne of Maharaj Ranjit Singh: The throne was built by goldsmith Hafez Muhammad Multani from about 1820 to 1830. The throne is made up of resin core, wood and is covered with sheets of repoussé, and gold. However, in 1849, the British took this Golden throne as part of the state property when they annexed Punjab after the Second Anglo Sikh War. In 1851, it was displayed with other treasures of the Indian Empire at the Great Exhibition. It is now kept in the Victoria and Albert Museum with inventory number 2518(IS). The Royal Jade Wine Cup of Shah Jahan: This wine cup of Shah Jahan was made up of jade which was either imported from Central Asia or China. This White nephrite jade was specially designed for the Mughala emperor Shah Jahan who had a keen interest in arts and artistry. The cup dates back to 1657 CE. The length and width of this jade cup is 18.7 and 14 cm respectively. It was acquired by Colonel Charles Seton Guthrie after the 1857 revolt. It passed from several purchasers to Queen Maria of Yugoslavia. In 1962, it was acquired by the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1962. Amravati railings and Buddhapada: In British Museum, London, you’ll see a magnificent collection of 70 pieces depicting India’s famed Amravati sculptures. These sculptures were excavated by the British almost 140 years ago after which they were shipped to London from Madras (now Chennai) in 1859. They are so beautiful that one of the experts even mentioned, “You won’t see anything like this in India itself.” In fact the carvings are also sometimes compared with the eminent Elgin Marbles. The Saraswati Marble Idol – Baag Devi: The marble statue of Goddess Saraswati, the Hindu goddess of music, knowledge and wisdom was one of the prized possession of the temple at Bhoj sala in Central India (Madhya Pradesh), established by an enlightened “philosopher king” Raja Bhoj in 1034 AD. He dedicated his reign to developing centers of art. The figure was donated to the temple by a local family. Although it is said that the statue got lost and was acquired by the British Museum in 1886, it is believed that when the East India Company defeated Hindus and conquered Malwa in 1826 AD, they also attacked Bhojshala and destroyed many monuments and temples. It is said that in one such raids, Baagdevi idol was looted by Lord Curzon. The Mechanical Tiger Of Tipu Sultan: The mechanical tiger of Tipu Sultan expresses his hatred towards his enemy, the British. It is a toy where a tiger is seen savaging a near life-size European man. This mechanical tiger was found by the British in 1799 when they stormed inside his summer palace after defeating him. It was first exhibited to the London public in 1808 in East India House and was later transferred to the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1880 (accession number 2545(IS)). It now forms part of the permanent exhibit on the “Imperial courts of South India”. From the moment it arrived in London to the present day, Tipu’s Tiger has been a popular attraction to the public. The last surviving Mughal Throne: The Mughal style throne in the Topkapi palace treasury in Istanbul, gifted to Ottoman emperors by Naadir Shah and believed to be a part of the “Delhi loot” This was gifted by the infamous Nadir Shah of Iran to the Ottoman emperors. The throne is a masterpiece of the art of Indian craftsmen. It is in the form of a high-edged table resting on four legs. At the front is a low stool on which the feet were to be paced. The throne is covered with a cushion decorated with gold braid and pearls. The entire surface of the throne is covered with gold, with a red and green enamel wash and decorated with rubies, emeralds, and pearls. After Nadir shah’s death, the famous Peacock throne was broken down and destroyed by the assassins. #viralvideo, #viralfactsintelugu, #viralnews, news about british, 10 priceless, items, stolen, India, #India, #viralnewsaboutindia,
