Also, please be aware that while the majority of British Museum blog posts are written by authors at the Museum, occasionally they will be written by guest bloggers. The views expressed by guest bloggers here (and elsewhere) are their own and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Trustees of the British Museum or their staff.

Comment guidelines

We have a short list of guidelines that all participants on any British Museum online public forum are expected to follow.

By submitting a comment on the British Museum blog, you are confirming that you have read, understood and agreed to these guidelines. The Museum may revise them from time to time, so, please check them regularly.

The British Museum is the sole arbiter of the content of its blog, and therefore retains the right, though not the obligation, to place, edit, classify, or remove any content posted here.

  1. Comments must contribute to the discussion taking place within the thread and be written in a civil and dispassionate manner. Content or a user name which is obscene, defamatory, offensive, harassing, off-topic or otherwise objectionable or unlawful is not acceptable.
  2. No spamming.
  3. No repeated submission of the same (or very similar) contributions.
  4. Content submitted to advertise or promote goods and services is not allowed.
  5. All blog contributions must be in the language used in the original post.
  6. No impersonation of someone else.
  7. Blog submissions must not include URLs (web site addresses), unless directly relevant to the blog topic and part of a longer contribution.
  8. Repeated complaints about a single issue or the vexatious use of the complaint facility are not permitted.

Any user who feels a posted message violates these guidelines should contact web@britishmuseum.org

Comments which are perceived to be breaching the guidelines will be removed.

To keep discussions fresh and topical, comment facilities on individual posts will normally be closed two weeks after the date of publication.
