Non ceph, but interesting for those who are interested in archaeology, evolution, diversity, natural selection and the origins of the ideas. Interesting news here, the hulk of the Beagle has (almost certainly) just been located using ground penetrating radar underneath a dock that had been filled in on the River Roach in Essex, UK. According to reports the superstructure is pretty much intact. Let's hope one day it can be raised.

Way Cool! I was just reading an article yesterday about how Darwin was actually denied passage on the Beagle, until an uncle stepped in...fate, what a weird thing!
I do hope they can bring it up again...what a museum!
