Vikings burned down this Pictish fort well over 1,000 years ago. Archaeologists have found some amazing artefacts in the ruins. Incredible that they survived! #archaeology #Scotland

In the past, life was ‘nasty, brutish and short’ and most people died by the age 40, right? Actually, that's not really true - it was in fact surprisingly common for people to live into their 70s and the reason we think otherwise is basically just a quirk of statistics (and the fact that it's actually quite difficult to age adult bones).

Crystal skulls? Pah. This 5,000 year old crystal dagger is the real deal, and it was found with a bunch of tiny crystal arrowheads too. https://digventures.com/2018/03/amazing-artefacts-5000-year-old-crystal-dagger/
