Sunday Stamps on New Year's Day

 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!


  1. I bet that pendant would feel comfortably heavy around someone's neck.

    1. I am sure it would - and be a sign of power and authority

  2. 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.

  3. I have been lucky enough to get some of these. They are really beautiful stamps!

  4. Beautiful object, it is indeed a striking stamp set.

  5. Nice post thank you Michael
