Wow! Exhumed mummies that is amazing.
What the heck?! Exhumed mummies??
You learn something everyday…
Hey, love the color of the day series, but this one is the best. Mummies! Trust those pre-raphaelites to have no qualms about it.
Crikey! Sort of interesting and disgusting at the same time , hahaha.
i just love this series you’re doing. what cool bits of knowledge to have handy. thanks!
WHAT. That is insane.
That’s so interesting and weird combined with Rossetti having wife & model Elizabeth Siddal exhumed.
That was part of the reason disease was such a problem during that time. Pathogens became airborne during the process of boiling the mummies
