Historical Thursday - Utnapishtin Found, Vesuvian Scrolls, & Medieval Arms and Armor

Over on archaeology.org last August, they mentioned the triumphal tale of how the 6500-year-old skeleton of a former middle-aged citizen of Ur and flood victim had been missing in the museum archives for over eight decades but rediscovered.  Learn more here.


Also, smithsonianmag.com tells us "Ancient Scrolls Blackened by Vesuvius Are Readable at Last."  Now that we can read them, what secrets will they reveal?  Find out more here.


Finally, on the Black Gate website, they show us "Medieval Arms and Armor at the Wallace Collection, London" here.
