Closer to home I loved this story about the re-discovery of the Verey Collection an intriguing collection of glass negatives taken by Castlemaine photographer Adolphus Verey between 1883-1954. You can see more of the 13,000 strong Verey Collection here.
This week also marks the 40th anniversary of Donald Johanson's discovery of my very favourite fossil, Lucy, the little woman who changed the way we think about human evolution.
How about you? Have you heard about any interesting discoveries lately?
