Interesting news and a birthday

1: huge archeological find in Staffordshire: to quote from the article, 'this is far bigger than previous finds - including the Sutton Hoo burial site in Suffolk'.
1350 pieces already and they know there's more from x-rays? dang. Gorgeous photos in there, too.

Also, raise a glass today to Arthur Guinness, who signed a 9,000 year lease on this day, 250 years ago. He and his family used the leased site in Ireland to produce an unusual twist on a British beverage. You may have heard of this drink.
  • They're so beautiful. I should e-mail my English professor (Medieval lit, taught me Old English) and ask him what he thinks about the whole thing.
    • I bet he's excited if he knows: a trove bigger than Sutton Hoo pretty much doubles our knowledge of the period's metalworking!
  • I love that the treasure was found by an unemployed guy using a standard metal detector.

  • A few of us (geez, it took me like three tries to type that) went to an Irish pub (Andrew's and my new "local") tonight, and they had live Irish music etc for Guinness's birthday. It was fun. :) Only one of us had a Guinness though.

    I'm not drunk anymore but I'm going to sleep like a ...thingie.
