I hope you all had a good Easter, or similar. I'm a little tied up today, Wednesday, and away tomorrow with 'Fake or Fortune?' - so I'm afraid you can't expect much from me till Friday.

The below story about the National Trust has many interesting updates though, in the meantime. Please do continue to tell me what you think about all this.

Update - do have a read of the Grumpy Art Historian's latest account of Italian museums. It makes the National Trust's problems seem very minor in comparison.

Update II - Neil MacGregor is stepping down as Director of the British Museum. I suspect this means that he'll be appearing on our screens soon as part of the BBC's revamped Civilisation, which is excellent news. Though I have it on good authority that the series will be presented by multiple presenters.
