Chalkis, II

Post by system1988 »

Hey all I am sending to you all the photos from the new Archaeological Museum of Chalkis of Greece which is housed in what used to be a factory for making ouzo drink. The theme might seem tiring to you and to some pointless, but we should not forget where our alphabets originated from.

Here is the link to the album

Enjoy!

Hi Pauline,

Lovely, thanks. What is this though? It looks like something out of Aliens!

A squid? An octopus?

Ah, I can see it now, thanks. I was confused because I thought it was a snake on the left.
