CA‘s sister-magazine Current World  Archaeology is celebrating its 10th  anniversary. To mark the occasion, I  persuaded my four girls to bake a suitably  themed birthday cake. It seemed  like a good idea, until the kitchen disappeared  beneath clouds of icing sugar  and flour, and copious quantities of  food-colouring in varying hues redecorated the floor, furniture, and a small,  bewildered dog. But, out of the chaos, they did manage to produce an edible  (if very sweet) map of the world, studded with a few ancient monuments (not  to scale) made out of icing sugar, which they shared with everyone at Current  Publishing. No one has called in sick… yet.
