This is the Parthenon hall. (bunch of thieves!)
Scene of Athena and Zeus from the Elgin Marbles.
Great fragment of a horse sculpture from the pediment on the Parthenon.

Little crocodile mummy....
Cleopatra's mummy.....sheesh...there were a lot of mummies.
In the medieval Britain area, there was a great chess set from the 12th century known as the Lewis Chessmen. Here's the king.
And from a special exhibit of medieval Yorkshire items, this is a shrine fragment from the 1330s from York Cathedral.
And all by itself was this great Mayan relief of blood letting for sacrifice. Cool huh?
