Well, this is the final "what went right". It's been a fun four months, and I'll be sorry to see the series go in some ways, but unfortunately, go it must. So let's make this last one a good one.

Secret tomb containing bodies of former archbishops of Canterbury found under London museum by AP/ABC (uncredited)

The Garden Museum, located in the former St-Mary-at-Lambeth church, next to Lambeth Palace, has been closed for renovations since 2015. During the renovations, one of the things they discovered was a hidden crypt, containing the bodies of five former archbishops of Canterbury (Lambeth Palace is the Archbishop of Canterbury's London residence), among others. Given the former church's proximity to the Thames, the discovery of the crypt was a complete surprise.

Tasmanian mural competition challenges artists to look 'through the eyes of a child' by Sallese Gibson (ABC Tasmania)

Tasmania's MuralFest, hosted in the north-western Tasmanian town of Sheffield, kicked off on Sunday morning, with the theme of "Through the Eyes of a Child".

Giant pumpkins on show as locals compete at the Cadell Harvest Festival by Brittany Evins (ABC South Australia)

The annual Murray River Giant Pumpkin competition at the Cadell Harvest Festival has been held for the seventh time. It includes prizes for the ugliest pumpkin, the best dressed pumpkin, and the heaviest pumpkin.

So there's the final three for this series. It's been fun doing these, and I'm going to miss it, but unfortunately, I need the spoons it uses for other stuff. Thanks to everyone who's been reading along, and a big thanks to everyone who shared anything in the comments over the last four months. The good stuff is out there alongside the bad stuff - it's all a matter of where you direct your attention.
