“Peat Bog Man”

Part of the Elgin Marbles exhibition at the British Museum

I love the British Museum of Natural History…..enormous, free, everything from soup to nuts in the cafeteria to the exhibits….
I visited there a few years back…..
Every museum has its highlights or special exhibitions that we seek out above the rest…..
It is hard to choose at the British Museum, you have to devote more than a day there, I felt exhausted after a few hours of running around with a heavy coat and backpack slung around my shoulder.
I saw the Egyptian mummies, the Parthenon Marbles……(I even caught an orb in one)…….to gladiator apparel to exquisite artifacts….
But I most wanted to see the “Lindow Man”
Some may have heard of him…….this being so well preserved, scientists could even determine his last meal, charred bread, before his violent death.
I ran from floor to floor searching…….no Lindow Man…..
Finally, out of desperation, I asked a Museum guard…..
“Where is the Peat Bog Man?”……..
He answered……”Oh, he is on the Underground”
The Underground!!!!!!!!
For those who do not know, the Underground is London’s subway system…….
Yes, my Lindow Man was on a special Underground train, destined for a special exhibition in another part of the country…..
My dreams felt tossed under the Underground tracks……with Lindow Man riding overhead.
I never did get to see him……not yet, at least…..
Even Peat Bog Men have subway trains to catch, it seems.
One day, Lindow Man, one day, you and I will have our rendezvous……. 🙂

Namaste,

Shirl
