What is a vacation without something history related slipped in. Well, we visited the University of British Columbia Museum of Anthropology and I found some war related artifacts. I thought I'd share them with you. The museum mainly focuses on British Columbia native artifacts, but they do have a mix of other non-Canadian artifacts.
