Piddock and the Romans revisited

I've just added a post backdated five years - Piddock - and an appendix - following updates to a piece originally posted on my other weblog.

It concerns a story connecting luminous shellfish with a Roman villa near Lyme Regis that I picked up from a wall presentation in the Devon RD&E hospital, where I was staying over Christmas 2007 after an appendectomy. Five years later, Dr Andrew May, a volunteer at Lyme Regis Museum, and maintainer of the Lyme Regis Museum blog, contacted me as the connection was proving difficult to verify, and a quick visit today confirmed that I'd misread the presentation. Oops!

However, the story took another turn from there: check it out.
