Friend of this blog and Friend of Charles Darwin (he founded the whole thing, go and join if you haven't) Richard Carter celebrated his recent 50th birthday by getting a behind the scenes tour of the Natural History Museum in London, especially the fossils collected by Charles Darwin. Fortune favours the prepared mind, and there are few better prepared minds than Richard's on the subject of Darwin, his deeds and his words.
He - Richard, not Darwin - clearly had a wonderful day, and the result is a wonderful read. Off you go and read The great Darwin fossil hunting expedition. What? Are you still here? Off you go. And tell a friend.
