Congratulations on a beautiful display!

It is a great presentation and in a location ripe with young minds that could contribute alot to meteoritics if properly stimulated.

The addition of the cuneiform tablet, and its description is particularly nice. It puts the meteorite into an historic context that would otherwise be overlooked.
