Attended the Private Preview of the Galleries of Louvre Abu Dhabi Museum on Friday 10th November 2017. The Museum opens to the public tomorrow, on Saturday 11th November 2017.
It was great to see so many amazing things as I wandered around with friends and colleagues. I feel especially proud that some of our own archaeological discoveries are featured in the Museum. They include the Ubaid vase from Marawah Island, some Bronze Age pottery from Hili, a Carnelian necklace from Hili, a Dilmun stamp seal from the Bronze Age site on Sir Bani Yas Island, and a plaster stucco panel from the Sir Bani Yas Church.
