Irving Finkel is my hero


Morning all, hope you are well. I’m fan girling over the curator of cuniform from the British Museum. Okay, I have been fan girling over him for a couple of years now.

What the heck? Am I cracked? Absolutely. However, he read on an old tablet, the rules to the Royal Game of Ur. He read the Babylonian version of Noah’s Ark. He spear-headed a diary saving scheme.

Not only is he a reader, he is a savior of the written word. I squeel with delight over the thought that the written word is saved.

I’m chuffed to bits. All Hail Irving Finkel and all those involved in this great project.
