Corinthian helmet from the Battle of Marathon (490 BC) found with the skull inside

Quite neat to see this on my dash considering we had a lecture in humanities about Classical Greece where we just so happened to go over the Battle of Marathon.

Amber Inclusions by Anders Damgaard

With all this discussion recently surrounding the ethics of manipulating DNA in an effort to resurrect lost species, it seems appropriate that we take a look back in time at the vessels for our future T-Rexes and (fingers crossed~!) Giant Ground Sloths. Until that glorious day when we will ride atop the backs of huge beavers (it was a thing! Science up), admire the beauty of these amber-encased insects, forever looking out at us through a layer of several million years.

Friendly reminder that amber is one hypercool plant material; it is the fossilized resin of ancient trees. And it’s not just animals and insects that prehistoric amber has trapped for modern scientists to study, it has also trapped pollen, plant parts, and other goodies that help in reconstructing ancient landscapes. ~AR
