We discovered this quotation at Chelsea Physic Garden. It is the motto of Carl Linnaeus, the 18th Century Botanist and father of modern Taxonomy. We think his motto is so apt for our project that we have decided to adopt it.

We're not sure what this small plastic component is, or does (was, or did?). 2 cm long, with the 'head' measuring 1.1cm across and the 'body' 0.6cm across, it is a moulded (possibly injection moulded) thermoplastic part in bright yellow. Evidence of attachment to another piece or part is present in the side nodules. Has sustained some superficial damage to the surface - scratched and slightly distorted in places. Found on the corner of Lots Road and Tadema Road, 11th July 2007, 12 noon. click here to view the location on streetmep.

During the course of our day at Chelsea Physic Garden many visitor made suggestions as to the origins and purpose of this perplexing plastic piece - though one of the last visitors of the day came up with an answer that we believe to be correct - that this is in fact the component of a disposable lighter that one depresses in order to release gas from the lighter fluid chamber.

1980s exercise


Immature green conker, found on the Thames Path opposite St Mary's Church Battersea on the 11th July at 11.49 am. We must assume that the inclement weather of the past couple of weeks knocked this conker down before it had a chance to fully ripen. Click here to view the location on streetmap.

During the course of our research we discovered that the horse chesnut - of which the 'conker' is the nut, is not native to the british isles but originated in a small mountainous region of the Balkans, being cultivated and transported around the world for its spectacular candle-like flowers.
