Strange Brouhaha

Wednesday, May 11, 2005


I loved ancient Egypt when I was little. (I still remember making trouble for a museum docent who tried to pretend to us kiddies that canopic jars were used to hold "their pretty jewelry." "Those are CANOPIC jars," I said loudly, "and they put their INTESTINES in them.")

Now, they've reconstructed the face of King Tutankhamun. Be sure to look at all the pictures.

To think that this human being lived and died over 3000 years ago is awe-inspiring to me.
