Interesting stuff about the science of evolution and the natural world

Not much to say here really, just a bit of a plug for the Natural History Museum in London. One of it’s most treasured displays is the very first Archaeopteryx fossil which was found in Germany in 1861, giving Darwin and Wallace some timely evidence for their newly published theory. And they show the genuine fossil, not a cast.

I think I love the building nearly as much as the exhibits.

Inside and out, everywhere you look, there are carvings of creatures weird and wonderful.
