It all started with vellum.

We were led to believe that Queen Elizabeth's speech opening a new session of the British parliament next week was being delayed because it had to be printed on vellum: a parchment made from the skin of a calf.

And, that ink on vellum takes quite a while to dry. Hence, the delay.

Fascinating! So British!

Well, it turns out, the Queen's speech used to be inked on vellum, but those days are long gone.

Now, it's printed on goatskin parchment. But don't be fooled: there is no actual goatskin in the Queen's goatskin.

SCOTT SIMON, HOST:

A short drive south of Birmingham is a museum that might seem more at home near the nation's capital. It's dedicated to George Washington. Andrew Yeager with member station WBHM joined some visitors there to take in the collection.
