      ​Not a huge expert on Egyptian archeology, but the beard on that sarcophagus was reserved for members of the royal family I think.
      ​Turns out the tomb is from the era of Tutankhamun and belonged to a important judge named Userhat.

      In 1740, a Dutch merchant ship called 'De Rooswijk' sank on the notorious Goodwin Sands in Kent, killing all 350 people on board. Now, almost 280 years later, a huge research mission is being launched to salvage the enormous merchant ship.

        • I read that this morning! Fantastic article, I thought! I had my mt dna tested years ago, out of curiosity. My Mother knew she was Dutch, and Welsh, but lo, her mt haplogroup comes out out the Iberian Peninsula, which no one knew! It looks like she was almost a quarter Spanish. Oh the surprises of dna!

          • Her bones reveal that she only stood 1.50 meters tall (yet apparently worked with enormous animals) and that she led a very tough life. She had probably suffered a strong blow to the head as a child that left her with a head injury. Her nutrition was poor, suggesting long periods of food scarcity. She had joint disease and had probably endured a bad toothache for months.

              Well of course, do you know how long it takes to put that shit on? And it looks a mess.
