As part of Archaeology we've been looking at various human skeletons, learning how to age them and find out their gender...that sort of thing. Anyway I got a few pictures of 'the headless roman', it's a bit of a sad story about him.

He was a bit short (5"2) and must've really annoyed someone because he was welded into chains about a year before he died and then he was buried in them, he's called the headless roman because he was beheaded (strangely enough o.O). It was really weird looking at all the injuries he suffered whilst being imprisoned and at the same time knowing this had been a person. I dropped one of his toe bones and ended up apologising to him, the professor who was teaching the class said she apologises too O.O. It was a really odd set of experiences to look at different bones each week.

p.s never get syphilis...it is so ew on your bones
