Caledonian Excavations


Napoleon's real victory in Egypt was having commissioned in February of 1802 the publication of the "Description of Egypt", illustrated by 400 copperplate engravers over a period of close to twenty years: "équivalent du plus riche musée du monde."
Such work is going on in Caledon Highlands under the archaelogical supervision of Vlad Bjornson, whose incendiary act and mercurial appearance belie a phlegmatic and gentle character. He suffered my many questions about stage managing Doctor Fluxus' performance and offered much helpful advice. It happens we both suffer from quaternion headaches, though his remedy, cold beet, was one I have not yet tried.

I have not had a chance to meet Mr. Vlad yet but his work sounds exciting! Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
