The British Museum, established in 1753, houses some of the world-famous objects include the Rosetta Stone, the Parthenon sculptures, and Egyptian mummies. The gallery explores the history of farming in the Middle East and the resulting social, cultural, and economic progress that formed the modern world in Europe.
