Mummy dearest?

The Times Online has a short profile of Chris Stringer, with relation to the ancient Britain project. I just love the way it starts:

Shortly after marrying an archaeologist, Agatha Christie remarked: "An archaeologist is the best husband any woman can have. The older she gets, the more interested he is in her."
Professor Chris Stringer considers this as he makes his way through a maze of steel cupboards at the back of the Natural History Museum. His partner, Angela, is approaching her fiftieth birthday, but to interest him professionally she would need to be a good deal older: "Any younger than 10,000 years and I lose interest."

That is soooo cute!
