A Weekend Trip to Burgos Museum

Last weekend Sean and I finally visited Burgos Museum. It’s housed in two separate but adjoining buildings — Casa de Miranda (a Renaissance palace) and Casa de Angulo — and has an excellent collection of archaeological treasures from nearby Atapuerca and Ojo Guareña, iron age relics and various Roman artefacts from the nearby city of Clunia.

We spent a couple of hours working our way through the exhibits in the Casa de Miranda, deciding to leave the fine arts in the Casa de Angulo to another day. As well as taking in some history, we also took a bunch of photographs. Above are photographs of the building itself — the stairwell and the oval window above it. Below are a couple of photographs of Roman artefacts (the bird house looking things are urns from Poza de la Sal, a small village about 60 km north of Burgos).

We’re looking forward to returning, but in the meantime you might also like to look at one of Sean’s photographs of the remains of an iron age man from Atapuerca.

    • Thanks, Helen! It’s amazing what you can do with an iPhone and Instagram. Oh, I got a replacement lens yesterday — finally. It’s a white box (new) Nikon 18-105 VR. I’d love to have something more than a ‘kit’ lens, but it’s certainly better than no lens, And quite versatile. Really would love to get a super wide angle lens one day.
