Welcome Back to the Labyrinth

"We have been away far too long, my friends," Ashoka declared, his face lit by the eldritch green glow of his staff. "But we have finally returned to the labyrinth whence our adventures first began."

"Just imagine the treasures that lie within," said Yun Tai, flexing his mighty muscles. "Wealth enough to live in luxury the rest of our days."

"And arcane artifacts of great power," added Ashoka his words dripping with avarice. "All ours for the taking!"

"Umm...guys?" Nysa interrupted. "Do you hear something dripping?"

Gone Fossil Huntin'

I just wanted to let everyone know that I will be doing field work for the rest of August, so there won't be any further posts until September.

Hopefully, I'll find some cool stuff to turn into even cooler monsters when I get back.

Where are you of to? What's the focus? Good hunting.

For the past seven years I've been part of a team from the Manitoba Museum and the Royal Ontario Museum that have been excavating a site in central Manitoba with exceptional preservation. We've been collecting some of the best preserved fossil jellyfish in the world, as well as eurypterids, and a new genus of horseshoe crab that extends the fossil record of the group by 100 million years.

We've reconstructed the environment of the site as an ancient shallow lagoon about 450 million years old.
