I, too, would have loved to be able to make it out to London while the Hadrian exhibit is on. However, I'm glad that the Babylon exhibit will be on when I'm next in the UK; I've been told that the myths pertaining to Babylonia, namely the Tower of Babel and the Hanging Gardens, will be explored as part of this exhibition.
Oh, speaking of the Tower of Babel, it was front and centre on the front cover of The Economist last week. I wish I had bought a copy - if I recall correctly, it had to do with the US economy and its current state.
Woops. It's regarding international governance, actually. It's on the cover of the 5 July issue. The link is here:
