    For those of archeological bent visiting London the British Museum are receiving 20 terracotta soldiers loaned by China from Qin's Xian tomb as a form of 'terracotta diplomacy' displaying a tiny fraction of the 'necro-army' from the most important archeo-site in the world from next week. Further details on Page 19 in The Times today. God I wish they'd open up the mountain before I die but Chinese officials have no plans to. Similar to exploring the rest of that tunnel coming out of the Kings Tomb in Cheop's pyramid.

    Did anyone see the TV programme on this last night? Absolutely fascinating display in the BM reading room. The last thing the commentator said was 'I hope they open the mountain tomb before I die'. Talk about being impatient! Being the most important archeological site in the world today..... then went to the dentist today and on one of the doors it said 'Patient Toilet' ... well I never realised such an inanimate edifice had such animalistic feelings!!

    Better than a Disabled Toilet. I've always thought that was a particularly useless thing to advertise.
