The agora, Athens (in Lego)

Lego agora, 5/4/17

The wife’s Lego fetish took us up to Newcastle for a day out, with the Centre for Life — a science museum, basically — containing a temporary ‘Brick History’ exhibit, with various historical events depicted in plastic. I have always said that should a time machine ever be invented, my choice for a return would be ancient Athens to see how democracy actually got started: I doubt it was quite as orderly as this though. (I’d stop off on the way in Manchester, 1979, to see Joy Division live, too.)
