London book launch

I went up to London the other evening to attend the book launch at the British Museum of my brother's latest book - Mapping Jordan through Two Millennia - a book showing how travellers and scholars since Roman times have put together their maps of the land East of Jordan - a fairly erudite volume - he is after all a biblical scholar of some repute!

The book is published by Maney Publishing.

I have to confess that I had never before been to the British Museum. What an impressive place, and I have firmly resolved to return soon for a longer exploration. As a child I used to travel to London regularly to visit the Natural History Museum, but somehow never made it to the British Museum.
