  1. This work is partially funded by National Geographic. Very very exciting find if they can do more with what they have. I'm not exactly sure what happens next. Here's a story from our news department: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2012/03/120312-leonardo-da-vinci-mural-lost-painting-florence-science-world/
  2. Just like I like my vino: chunky
  3. That's a hell of a delicate and refined piece to have been carved 35,000 years ago...
  4. For $30k, I want to see a couple of pictures first.
  5. How weird...I couldn't even tell if anything NEW was being reported...
  6. Thought I'd share that National Geographic Magazine's November cover story is on the Anglo Saxon hoard. The treasure itself will be in our museum in a few weeks. The international editions are sometimes different than the US, but I'm guessing this story will at least be in the mag, if not on the cover. If anyone's going to be in DC to check it out, please let me know. J

    Anyone going to Rome in th eFall

    I'm coming late to this posting, but thanks for the pix. I've only been to Rome once, but there's something about it that has me completely mesmerized. My wife and I went about 3 years ago and I'm trying to convince the family to all go next summer. We've been looking at family tours, but honestly, I can't find any difference between a 'family' tour and any other kind of tour. Thanks again for sharing. J

    It's AD 455 all over again!!

    What a bunch of tools. I hadn't realized that the statue at Piazza Navona is just a reproduction...that's good at least.
  10. Ahh...I see what they were getting at now. Doesn't seem to perfectly fit that rounded top lintel, but I get the point. Good grab...thanks.
  11. "The precise calculations made in the positioning and construction of the Pantheon mean that the size and shape of the beam perfectly matches, down to the last inch, a semicircular stone arch above the doorway." Has anyone been able to find an image of what's referenced above? I can't find any clear pix of the doorway to the Pantheon... J

    Farewell Britannia by Simon Young

    Yeah...I see...I dunno what the hell I was looking at before. It clearly stated that the book wasn't available to consumers in the US. Um. Nevermind. :-)

    Farewell Britannia by Simon Young

    Ben - this looks very interesting actually. Seems it's not available in the US. ...looking around to see if there's a ebook copy floating around and accessible anywhere J
