Archaeology is rad
Someday I plan to be one of those leathery old tanned ladies who wears head-to-toe khakis and traverses the desert looking for archaeological marvels, perhaps sometimes with my good friend Amanda. We've said as much since we were 14. This week had several extremely cool archaeological discoveries reported in the news; I was thrilled by them as I read the paper with my morning coffee. I get ridiculously excited about all the secrets that lay hidden inside the earth, tales from past civilizations. So check it out:
Ancient Greek Antikythera device's computing code finally cracked
Roman tomb discovered under Trafalgar Square in central London
Leonardo DaVinci's fingerprint reconstructed, analyzed
And oh, I just can't help it: The week also uncovered some special no-no places that should have remained buried. Indefinitely.
