Good morning, 1000 years ago there was a woman in Germany making illuminated manuscripts using incredibly precious lapis lazuli, and we know this because we looked at the tartar on her teeth https://www.theatlantic.com/science/archive/2019/01/the-woman-with-lapis-lazuli-in-her-teeth/579760/
@Pixley Or maybe she just ate rocks for fun; jury’s out!
@alex it would literally be like eating gold for fun, but anything is possible!
@Pixley Isn’t this story AMAZING????
@franciecashman it's incredible, I love how many different disciplines had to get involved to figure this out!
@Pixley Gives me hope! Seriously!
@Pixley fucking awesome; that applies both to the scribe and the sleuthing!
@rubah the whole thing is SO cool
@Pixley can’t wait to tell my dental hygienist to “leave a little something for the archaeologists”
@alana who KNOWS what's in your mouth that will be of interest to the Future People???
@Pixley i just don’t want to run the risk of disrupting important future discoveries??? what’s a little gingivitis when weighed against that
@alana so noble!
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
