Things I Have Learned This Week

  1. There were such creatures as Wooly Rhinos, as well as Wooly Mammoths
  2. Some dinosaurs had reddish brown feathers, much like a modern day pheasant, and could glide from the tree tops.
  3. There are fossilised giraffe skulls painted on ancient Greek vases.
  4. During the English Civil War, King Charles I decamped his whole court to Oxford. He was based at Christchurch College, the poshest of the colleges, and his wife, Henrietta Maria, at Merton College.
  5. Spectrophotometric. It's my new favourite word.
