Nothing reflects well on the T-words.

E2 was never actually Queen, imo, but I think she's in charge until she abdicates or goes to the big handbag in the sky. She's apparently been giving more duties to Charles, but my guess is she won't abdicate.

I had to look up the whole "queen mother" thing. It's not really an official title in Britain, but comes with certain rules and regs--if I'm reading it right, you have to have been the queen consort (and have a child that somewhat resembles the king) to be a queen mother. If you're just the mum of the monarch, but somehow didn't blackmail the king into making you the consort, then you're just a mum who should have had a pre-nup that said you got the orb thingie and the scepter or no go.

Re: Richard III

There are rumors that Prince Philip, husband of Elizabeth II, has passed away at age 95. This so far is based on reports of a summons to all royal staff people across the UK to come to London for a rare emergency meeting. Whatever the truth, that kind of summons doesn't seem like it would come for good news.

And whatever the history, it would be sad news for the family and the country.

Keep seeing people saying that royal protocol means that any announcement would be made by the BBC at 8 a.m. London time. Part of the delay is a reasonable requirement to inform all family members before telling the public. Does all official news come in the morning no matter what?

I love some of the more eccentric traditions that sometimes seem to date to the Conqueror (I think the official birth announcement of Prince George, who's in line for the throne, came via a printed sign outside Buckingham Palace, even though everybody already knew everything.)

Somebody wake up airly and make her find out what's going on.

Re: Richard III

So, the rumors were pretty much true, if by "passed away" you really meant to say "retiring in several months from active ribbon-cutting, although he'll still do lots of other stuff." He's currently the fifth busiest member of the family, which means that some of those freeloaders need to get off their duff.

Just glad it wasn't bad news about him or the corgis or anyone else. The whole fam is a bunch of usurpers and should all stop cutting ribbons, but no point in being hateful about it.

And this, my lovely lady Maturin, is one of the many reasons I love you so.

Re: Richard III

Anyone for another trip back to the Bronze Age? Okay then, here we go.

Visit the village of Bodrum, Turkey, on the southwest coast, near the city of Kas you will find a couple of sites of interest to tourists. The first is Iron Age. In antiquity Bodrum was known as Helicarnassus. That might ring a bell for a few people. In the 4th Century BCE the area was ruled from the town as a client state of the Persian Empire. For about a thirty year period the ruler, or Satrap, as such a person is called, was a fellow named Mausolis. Perhaps he had visited Egipt, seen the pyramids there, but he wanted to let people know he had been around after he was gone so he commissioned a 150 foot tower to be built as the final resting place for him and his wife. It's not known whether his remains ever occupied the room at the top, but the tower did stand for many years until it was damaged by an earthquake. As it began to collapse over the centuries people carted stone away for building materials, now all that remains is the foundation. The building is famous as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and Mausolis's name survives into the English language in the form of a tomb for above-ground interment, "mausoleum".

But if you visit Bodrum there's another building you should definitely visit. It's a museum which houses the treasure from a Bronze Age shipwreck. And it's incredible. In 1982 a local sponge diver was diving off the south cape of the peninsula, a place called Uluburun. Only 120 feet from shore, in roughly 100 feet of water (the bottom drops at a steep, uneven angle), he found old timbers. it took until the summer of 1984 for a full scale recovery operation to begin, this ran until the summer of 1994. What they pulled up is the wreckage a cargo ship from the late 14th Century BCE carrying materials from literally everywhere that trade at the time was occurring. Elephant tusks from Africa, amber from the Baltic, tin ingots from Britain, class ingots from the Levant, it's all there.

Here's a link to the Wiki article, nice place to start reading: Wikipedia Uluburun Shipwreck

Another is a South African archaeology site called Akroterion which has a file, either viewable in a small window or downloadable in PDF: Akroterion Uluburon Shipwreck

Re: Richard III

I have a student (one of my gifted kids) who is obsessed with shipwrecks. I'll have to bring this up to him.
