    Found in the earth beneath a parking lot after 500-plus years.


    Gives hope to the Hoffa family in the year, oh, 2475.

    So does that make this the winter of our discontent?

    This is all well and good, but I'm still waiting for the remains of the Princes in the Tower to turn up.

    This is either the worst sequel to Evil Dead ever or the best sequel to the Quartermas Pit ever.

    If they find dead giant crickets, we're fucked.

    I saw that yesterday where they did the facial reconstruction and thought it was pretty cool.

    “And thus I clothe my naked villainy
    With odd, old ends stol'n out of holy writ,
    And seem a saint, when most I play the devil.”

    I'm assuming that they didn't find any horse bones nearby...

    It's things like this that fascinate me about history. Even if it's a cup or a fork that is unearthed after centuries, I like to imagine what the person to whom it belonged did in their daily lives, using it a breakfast or supper no different than myself. When bones are unearthed it gives a real sense of reaching back across time. Here was a major historical figure - a king no less - whose death was well documented a significant shift in history, and how many thousands of people walked or more recently parked their cars right over top of his remains for 500 years without even knowing it?
