Lost and found
The Flea's lost and found department is pleased to report the recovery of the anchor from the Mary Rose, a happy byproduct of preparation for the Royal Navy's next generation carriers expected in 2012. Exceptionally low tides on the coast of Suffolk revealed bits and pieces of sunken Dunwich. Shipping industries are suggested though the whole pervades with the sense of tentacles if you ask me. From underwater to underground, an aestal was recovered by a metal detecting enthusiast on an Aughton farm. Though I had no idea what an aestal was until I read the article I doubt I would have mistaken it for a milk bottle top. A most sensible device it turns out to be.
