Funny, what you find in the basement...

Well this is pretty neat: "UK scientists find 'lost' Darwin fossils."

Reminds me why I like libraries, museums, and archive full of old books and actual, physical artifacts -- you can't stumble across things like this unless they're actually sitting there to be stumbled across. Also reminds me why I love the digital age: so many more of us will be able to see these fossils now, without having to travel to them.
