Bailey Old and Young

Bailey K. Young is very familiar with the Metro system in Paris, where over the years he dug up many an old bone and brushed the dirt off many an old stone when he wasn’t attending classes on Merovingian archaeology (and later teaching them).  But put him on the London Underground, en route for the Roman and Medieval treasures stored up in the Museum of London (just up the way from St. Paul’s Cathedral), and what does he come upon but a sign that might be taken as a hint he is no longer as young as he once
was.  Egad!

Professor Young, accompanied by his wife Christine (formerly of Paris, not the one in Illinois), was teaching last semester at Harlaxton College in Lincolnshire (they call it the Presentation Term there).  One of the joys of that term was being able to show his students sites like Stonehenge, as you see him doing here:
