The theme today is archaeology, and you can see more stamps on this topic via the links at Sunday Stamps.
Royal Mail issued a set of stamps last year to mark the 100th anniversary of the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb by archaeologist Howard Carter. Luckily for me, as they are a beautiful and vibrant set, I received one of the stamps on a postcard.
Joy has the full set on display today if you'd like to see more.
Happy new year, everyone!
I bet that pendant would feel comfortably heavy around someone's neck.ReplyDelete
I am sure it would - and be a sign of power and authorityDelete
Beautiful stamp. The Worcester Art Museum where I teach has a Jewels of the Nile exhibit that coincided with the 100th anniversary. The exhibit closes on 8. January.ReplyDelete
I would love to see that exhibitDelete
