Oxford Museum of Natural History and the Pitt Rivers Museum
This morning our lecturer was Revd. Dr. Michael Ward, writer of "Planet Narnia." I was really excited to hear him because I read a book review of his book before I left. I now have a signed copy of it! During my break after lunch I walked to the Oxford Museum of Natural History and the Pitt Rivers Museum which is just down the street from Wycliffe Hall. I got to see the remains of the Dodo that influenced Lewis Carroll's Dodo in "Alice's Adventures in Wondland." There was also an exhibit about the "real Alice" and remains of Dinosaur bones. It was a pleasant break from writing the papers that are due tomorrow. I then went to the University Parks and read some of Emma for my Jane Austen class.
