Charlemagne’s bones identified: 1,200-year-old remains in a German cathedral belong to ‘Europe’s father’, claim scientists. 1. After 26 years of research, German scientists are satisfied that bones held for centuries at Aachen Cathedral, are those of the king of the Franks. 2. A total of 94 bones and fragments were analysed. 3. Researchers studied the thigh, shin and arm bones to get an idea of the skeleton’s height and build – which match descriptions of the emperor.
Archaeologists say they have found a complete skeleton buried beneath the floor of an abandoned nunnery in Florence, Italy, which might belong to Lisa Gherardini, the woman believed to have inspired Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa.
I have always loved old skeleton keys. I think they’re so beautiful. I was excited when I saw that the talented jewelry designer behind the Etsy shop Beyond the Rockz was inspired to create necklaces based on his own collection of antique and vintage keys (from Hooked on houses)
