French conductor

A Frenchman burst into the proceedings saying that they were going to solve this problem by building the biggest lightning conductor ever seen.

Curatorial Curiosities

Wax impression from the mediaeval seal of Glastonbury Abbey

Founded in the 7th Century, Glastonbury Abbey became one of the wealthiest and most powerful in the land by the mid-late mediaeval period. An “Engraving of a seal of the Abbey of Glaston” in the British Museum’s collection, identical to this wax impression, is dated 1536. This seal may have been in use for much longer.
