“Why, ” said the Dodo, “the best way to explain it is to do it.”

I have a deep love of British museum placards, they often go for funny. Once, in the North, my family went to a museum about Roman Britain along Hadrian’s Wall. There was a skull on showcase there that once belonged to a Celt who had been decapitated by the Roman garrison. The placard read something to the effect “remains of one of the revolting northern tribes.” To this day I haven’t figured out if that was meant to be a political or personal description.
