Remarkable story of Madagascar's last queen emerges from Surrey attic | Heritage | The Guardian

Quote:
Ranavalona’s remarkable life of can be revealed thanks to the auction this week of personal effects unearthed by a descendent of Clara Herbert, who worked for the Madagascan royal family from the 1890s to the 1920s.

Herbert was the paid companion to a queen whose adventures were the stuff of fiction. Widowed at 22, she was made to marry an elderly prime minister, dethroned after a French invasion and exiled to Algiers, never to return.

Is this the thread where we comment that the Pearl Harbour attack caused 2,403 US deaths? About 1 covid-day?

One for the pre-history geekodrome:

Siberia permafrost yields well-preserved ice age woolly rhino | Fossils | The Guardian

Quote:
Scientists dated the carcass from 20,000 years to 50,000 years ago. More precise dating will be possible once radiocarbon studies can be done at a laboratory.

The carcass was found on the bank of the Tirekhtyakh river, in the Abyisk district, close to the area where another young woolly rhino was recovered in 2014. Researchers dated that specimen, which they called Sasha, at 34,000 years old.

They finally finished refurbishing/retrofitting this old railroad trestle near my house. They turned it into a walking bridge and it connects the trail by my house to the trail to the dog park! Yay! :beagle:

it was more expensive to preserve it than just tear it down and build a new bridge, but the historical townsfolk lobbied to make it a monument and keep it. I've been following the story almost as long as we've lived here. It took way longer than projected, but it's done and it's totes awesome!
