She seems to have greatly enjoyed the visit and encouraged her 5.2 million followers on instagram to go.

“Yo!” she tweeted whilst posing with an Egyptian mummy, “go check out Ancient lives, new discoveries @ The British Museum!!! To learn about our past is to know our future bb’s” (sic)

In another photograph she posed with an ancient Egyptian granite fist which is over 3,000 years old.

The photo was accompanied by the message: “This is ancient stone fist so a fist bump was only appropriate #brah”

Her final photograph was of a sculpture of a centaur and a human fighting which is over 2,000 years old.
“Fighting over hoes since 300BC” she instagrammed.
