Still Waters Posted February 3 #1 Share Posted February 3 (IP: Staff) · More than 200 years after Napoleon met defeat at Waterloo, the bones of soldiers killed on that famous battlefield continue to intrigue Belgian researchers and experts, who use them to peer back to that moment in history. "So many bones—it's really unique!" exclaimed one such historian, Bernard Wilkin, as he stood in front of a forensic pathologist's table holding two skulls, three femurs and hip bones. He was in an autopsy room in the Forensic Medicine Institute in Liege, eastern Belgium, where tests are being carried out on the skeletal remains to determine from which regions the four soldiers they belong to came from. That in itself is a challenge. https://phys.org/news/2023-02-two-century-old-mystery-waterloo-skeletal.html 3 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
