Jules Verne’s Tomb

Being an archaeologist, I like tombs, and being a science fiction fan, I like Jules Verne. So you can imagine that I’d like Jules Verne’s tomb regardless of what it looked like. As it turns out, David Nessle has pictures from Amiens showing the tomb in question, and it’s an incredible piece of work. Look at the lettering! Look at that sculpture! “It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s Jules Verne who’s been resurrected and learned to fly!”

    No, he’s returning from a journey to the center of the earth.
    (That is great lettering on the stone, though!)

  3. Jules Verne was one of my boyhood heroes,as i can remember I read them all and looking back on all of this now 55 years later it is really amazing how close he came to reality as we know it today.
    Maybe it is time I started reading him again…
