UPDATE from my Dad:
Bryony, the Egyptian tablet IS genuine. I thought it lost. An old lady gave it to me when I was 13. Her brother had been a monk in Cairo. I dropped it several years later and it broke in two so I glued it back together. The British Museum would be horrified. I think it portrays the goddess Hathor. Hang on to it!
I have absolutely no idea where I got this. I just found it in the jewellery box. Any idea what it is? It looks like it could be ancient but it could be a replica thing I bought on a trip to a museum. It’s broken, I’ve put a few pics on here to see if someone can tell me what it is.
To stay on the theme of my own history, I’ve always had a fascination with ancient history. In a school book from when I was six I wrote:
“if I were an explorer, I would visit Egypt and discover the pyramids. But Egypt has already been found”.
