"Tales of pioneer hardship and deprivation have been told many times. Yet still we remember in wonder, that people accomplished so much with so little; that men and women with simple tools, their bare hands, and their own inventiveness cleared the land, drained the swamps, made their own clothing and provided their own food. Through all these difficulties God was with them and they wanted their children educated intellectually and spritually." from Norfolk Street United Church history

British Museum Channel

British Museum Channel - If you can't make it to the British Museum, why not peruse some of its great programs via this website?

The materials here cover excavations of unique objects, ongoing play performances at the Museum, and audio recordings of talks and lectures.

First-time visitors should look through the Events area, which contains talks about the life of Egyptologist Jean-Francois Champollion and the world of Antony and Cleopatra.

Moving on, the Object Stories area contains the Talking Objects collection. These videos features young people talking about what some of the storied items in the Museum mean to them.

Additionally, the Exhibitions area features previews of recent exhibits like "Treasures of Heaven: Saints, Relics, and Devotion in Medieval Europe" and "Grayson Perry: The Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman."
