Research Travel 2018—Antiquities (& Dinosaurs)

Museum hopping this afternoon. First to the Ashmolean Museum for some cuneiform and ancient Near Eastern culture, including the Sumerian King list, some Persian tiles, and Assyrian reliefs.

The Natural History Museum

Where Charles Darwin argued for his Origins work in 1860.

Dino’s and the Extinct Dodo

Emma’s elephant (who is traveling with me) discovered a long lost cousin–the wooly mammoth, who will be coming to Oregon!

And, just a reminder that chickens evolved from dinosaurs!!!

I followed up my museum visits, with a visit to one of the oldest pubs in Oxford—Lamb & Flag.
