British Museum - reopens British Galleries

After a long wait, the British Museum now has open galleries covering the Prehistoric and Roman periods in Britain.

The surprise is that the displays are virtually identical to the old displays, the order is the same, the information labels and the objects are nearly all the same. The gallery is brighter it is true but otherwise the gallery seems to have been closed for so long for no great gain.

The section on the Neolithic is new but, given, this is the age of Stonehenge is too small and not informative enough.
