Continuing from my “stuff you find on a curator’s desk” theme, here is a cute example of “stuff curators get sent”!
We loved Charlie’s letter and the astonishing find from his paleontology dig. The discovery of a Texta ink and sandstone sedimentary layer must have caused quite a stir on the dig site. We will send it straight to our acquisitions committee for assessment. Charlie should be commended for his keen interest in science (and excellent spelling skills…paleontology is a seriously hard work to spell*) and we hope he keeps up the good work!
