And in more news, my children have been working overtime to help the world’s academics discover more about the Glory that was Greece, and the Grandeur that was Rome. This time, some intrepid and dedicated moles led archaeologists to the discovery of a long-lost Romano-British villa in the Cotswolds. An ungrateful forensic archaeologist refers to the moles as “a pain,” but is also forced to admit that their work with archaeology has been tireless. One wonders where he gets off calling them “amateurs,” however, given that there have been moles burrowing under the grounds of Oxbridge for centuries. Hmph.
