The doors are open and the antiquities are in. People from all over the capital are making their way to the British Museum to witness their latest exhibition. The Mexico Exhibit takes us deep into the history of this ancient land. Since its discovery by Europeans in the sixteenth century, a deep and rich history of culture has been revealed spanning back nearly 4000 years. The earliest items and finds are accurately dated to around 2000 BC which coincides with the construction of the stone palace at Knossos in Greece and the creation of Babylonian mathematics, the first people to divide a circle into 360 radians.
This beautifully adapted display intends to demonstrate the beautiful and diverse culture that Mexico provided right up until the European invasion. The gallery provides a webpage with a long list of historical and interesting information which links directly to a Google Tour of the entire showcase. It doesn't matter if you live next-door to the museum or in Mexico itself, you too can pay attention and examine the display provided for everyone.
