A fluid link

Not quite a spoiler today, but a teaser. If you've seen Mirabilis season one, you'll know about the Roman paperweight Estelle found in the gardener's shed. (Which is the same place she got the shears she cuts her hair with, as a matter of fact. No Princess Leia granny buns for the Honourable Miss Meadowvane - she pretty much invented the messy-style emo haircut back in 1901.)

I first saw these strange fretwork globes being discussed on Time Team. Yes, they are real archaeological artifacts. You don't need to know that to enjoy our fantasy explanation of them, though, coming up in the Spring book. Fans of H G Wells and Doctor Who will not be disappointed. Now, that would only be a spoiler if I told you which characters actually get to use the full-size version...
