Intervene and reclaim your cultural history and artefacts 
Unofficial Stolen Goods Tour of The British Museum aka The Kako Anglezi Tour of The British Museum (Kako Anglezi means bad English people)

We do not live in a post colonial society.  Colonisation has become hegemonic in many places due to cultural acceptability.  Many countries such as New Zealand have experienced long term impacts- ongoing disproportionate incarceration of Māori and colonisation forces  intentionally preventing the passing down of language or other cultural traditions of indigenous or non British migrant communities. 
Many societies have had their culture stolen and trauma imposed in the colonial process. It is on the colonial agenda to intervene and divorce people from their own languages, cultural identities and artefacts. 
As artists we have a responsibility to intervene. We cannot allow the continued dispossession of culture land language  art or anything else from indigenous communities and societies.

Manga exhibition at British museum. It’s said the biggest manga exhibition outside Japan. So so excited🤩
大英博物館のマンガ展に行ってきました。
.
.
日本に生まれて良かったと思う理由の大きな1つが、漫画がその言語で読めること!翻訳されてる漫画ってほんの一部ですもんね。
.
.
大の漫画好きの私ですが、中々行くことができず、イギリスの学校が夏休みになる前に!と駆け込みで行ってきました。
.
.
聞いていた通り、外国に向けて、マンガって何?どうやって読むの?その歴史は?マンガの種類や社会に及ぼす影響などが説明、展示されていました。
.
.
もちろん名だたる先生方の生原稿も見られます。私のお目当ては、東村アキコ先生 @higashimuraakiko_official と萩尾望都先生😍
.
.
他の大好きな漫画の原稿も見れたし、なによりも日本の漫画が大英博物館という世界的有名な博物館でこんな大々的に展覧会が開かれていることに胸アツになりました。昔は漫画好きは差別されてたのに、良い時代になったなぁ。
.
.
ワンピースの原画の前で、ジョジョとワンピース、どちらが偉大な漫画か論争してたイギリス人2人が印象的でした。笑
.
.
期間中にできたらもう一度行きたいな。

Day7 🇬🇧倫敦
我們參觀了大英博物館的的希臘、羅馬、埃及展覽室
導覽員超厲害霹靂啪啦說的我五體投地
能夠背起來每一個動作、服裝的意義還有神話故事的恩愛情仇

來到倫敦必看的大笨鐘(可惜在維修)、倫敦眼、白金漢宮、倫敦鐵橋 在今天通通走過一遭
遊泰晤士河的船長講話真的很好笑 😂
風景也超級美👍
希望每天的雲都這麼美

🇺🇸/ Today, the 15th of July, is the 220th anniversary of the discovery of the famous Rosetta Stone. It was discovered in 1799 by a French soldier in the Julien Fort during the Egyptian expedition of Napoleon Bonaparte. This simple fragment of a stela of king Ptolemy V from the Ptolemaic dynasty, changed History, as it was the first bilingual Egyptian text found. In 1801, after Bonaparte was defeated by the British, it was transported to the British Museum, where it is now one of the most important objects. The Rosetta Stone bears the Decree of Memphis, which describes all the donations of Ptolemy V  to the temples. The same text is written first in hieroglyphs, then in demotic (a simplification) and finally in Greek. Several egyptologists have been rivals on the path to the decipherment of hieroglyphs, two of them being the British Thomas Young and the French Jean-François Champollion. But only one managed to decipher them, and its Champollion in 1822, without ever seing the real stone!

Ja. Irgendwie habe ich in den letzten Tagen vermehrt Dokus über das alte #Ägypten geschaut. Heute war eine über einen Forscher (E. A. Wallis Budge) dabei, der im Auftrag des #BritishMuseum Kunstgegenstände aufgekauft und nach Europa gebracht hat. Zu einer Zeit, als die Ausfuhr von Kunstwerken noch als Diebstahl galt ... da der Mann eine Affinität zum Okkulten hat, kann ich da sicher was nettes draus machen 🙂

Lord Norman Foster transformed the British Museum’s courtyard into what is now called The Queen Elizabeth II Great Court. It also happens to be the largest covered public square in Europe. Kudos to you, Foster 👏🏻

I got that book into my editor! I've been working on getting closely with my commissioning editor on getting a book to print by tomorrow, and I did the final production checks today! It was a tedious task, but I find the work to be relaxing and exciting. I've learned so much this summer, I can't believe it's close to being over😭🙈 (This is King George III's Library in the British Museum.)

#onthisday in 1799,a fortunate stroke of serendipity occurred when Napoleon’s troops were digging the foundation for a fort in near Rashid in the Nile Delta,Egypt. They discovered one of the most significant artifacts of the ancient world…the #rosettastone. (Thank you @natgeo for the reminder!). Photo taken on a recent trip to #London. 
More on the #RosettaStone, courtesy of the @britishmuseum: -  It was part of a larger stone slab (technical term: #Stelae), which would have been found in just about every temple in Egypt. -  There were 14 lines of hieroglyphics, 32 lines of Demotic (colloquial) text, and 53 lines of #AncientGreek text on the stone. -  The encryption is an official decree about King Ptolemy V (who reigned over Egypt from 204-181BC) on the 1st anniversary of his #coronation, listing all his accomplishments in his first year as pharaoh. -  The name “Rosetta” is the French translation of the town Rashid, where the stone was found. -  In the 19th century, Thomas Young deciphered, using the #Greek translation on the stone, that the hieroglyphs translated into sounds depicting the royal name of Ptolemy. -  Following this #discovery, #French scholar Jean Francois Champollion realized the #hieroglyphs recorded the #Egyptian language through his knowledge of the Coptic language ( a derivative of ancient Egyptian). Where can you see it in person? 
On the ground floor on the @britishmuseum, in room 4.  Per the terms of the Treaty of Alexandria (1801), upon Napoleon’s defeat, the stone became property of the British crown (@theroyalfamily) and was shipped to #England in 1802.  It has remained in the #BritishMuseum ever since; with the exception a two-year stint on the #PostalTubeRailway, 50 feet below ground at Holborn towards the end of WWI.

Day 11 of the Lindow Man Archives: Monday turned into an admin kind of day, where I focused on completing the typing up of all the Lindow Man and Lindow Moss related Bog Body finds and excavation records. Perhaps not the most exciting bit of this project, but essential nonetheless! 🖇 More importantly, I came across a few interesting and funny notations and sample/context descriptions! 🖋 Like, what’s a ‘sweep swab’ of the left humerus? And I loved the vague scientific classification of the ‘matted stuff’ from under chin near garrotte 💀
More archival gems coming your way tomorrow - when I’m spending the day tracing the conservation history and measures taken to preserve these unique Bog Bodies from their discovery in the 1980s to recent strategies employed by the specialist organics conservation staff at the BM! ⚗️ @britishmuseum

#OTD in 1799 the Rosetta Stone is discovered by Napoleon Bonaparte’s soldiers who are taking part in the Egyptian campaign. The find was incredibly important as the stone was inscribed with the same message in Greek and also in Ancient Egyptian inscriptions making translation possible. However, it was not an easy task and it took nearly twenty years for the Egyptian element to be decoded and read with confidence.. . 
If your hoping that the stone holds the secret to a hidden tomb, the secret treasure or the book of the dead then your going to be sorely disappointed! It in facts details a pretty routine piece of administration from 196BCE. It is a copy of a decree passed by a council of Egyptian priests who are marking the anniversary of the coronation of Ptolemy V Epiphanes as King of Egypt.. . 
The stone was transferred to British ownership after the defeat of the French army. Its been housed in the British Museum in London, since 1802 and is today the most visited artefact on display..
