Cabinet of curiosities: 15,000 ink samples at Secret Service

WASHINGTON: In a cabinet inside a modest laboratory in downtown Washington are rows and rows of ink samples in plastic squeeze bottles and small glass jars.

Iraq’s Babylon added to World Heritage Site

Baghdad: UNESCO's World Heritage Committee voted on Friday to list the sprawling Mesopotamian metropolis of Babylon as a World Heritage Site after three decades of lobbying efforts by Iraq. Iraq had been trying since 1983 to have the site – a massive 10-square-kilometre complex of which just 18 per cent has been excavated thus far – recognised by UNESCO.

"What is the world heritage list without Babylon? How to tell the history of humanity without...
