Huzzah for Giovanni Battista Piranesi, who not only gave the world amazing etchings of “imaginary prisons,” but also began the concept of historical preservation!

Speaking of preservation, archaeologists have found the remnants of the Curtain Theatre in London, where Shakespeare’s plays were performed before the Globe Theatre was around.

Speaking of Shakespeare, it’s the fifty-year anniversary of Shakespeare in the (Central) Park.

Speaking of the British, many of them are unimpressed with the “Orbit” sculpture gracing the city.

And speaking of English (sort of), have you ever realized it’s a rather strange language?
