Chewing Gum Reveals Look of Neolithic Scandinavian | Ancient Origins

Quote:
Researchers from the University of Copenhagen have succeeded in extracting a complete human genome from a thousands-of-years old “chewing gum”. According to the researchers, it is a new untapped source of ancient DNA.

During excavations on Lolland, archaeologists have found a 5,700-year-old type of “chewing gum” made from birch pitch. In a new study, researchers from the University of Copenhagen succeeded in extracting a complete ancient human genome from the pitch.


I fully expect woolly mammoth and sabre-tooth tigers to be recreated from DNA, Jurassic-Park-style.

Quote:
In addition, the researchers succeeded in extracting DNA from several oral microbiota from the pitch, including many commensal species and opportunistic pathogens.

‘The preservation is incredibly good, and we managed to extract many different bacterial species that are characteristic of an oral microbiome. Our ancestors lived in a different environment and had a different lifestyle and diet, and it is therefore interesting to find out how this is reflected in their microbiome,’ says Hannes Schroeder.

The researchers also found DNA that could be assigned to Epstein-Barr Virus, which is known to cause infectious mononucleosis or glandular fever.
... plus, ancient plagues.

Finally, some news about Mussolini.

On this day April 28:
Quote:
Benito Mussolini executed
Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, “Il Duce,” who, after a series of military misadventures, became unpopular even
among his fellow Fascists, was captured while trying to flee Italy and was executed on this day in 1945.

This is amazing. A Virtual Tour of Pharoah Ramesses IV's Tomb.

It works like google street view in that you can spin around, zoom in spots, 'walk' down the ramp, etc....
