Burri-toes in Italy

A story was just posted on National Geographic News about the "lead burrito" sarcophagus found last summer at Gabii, the site outside of Rome at which I'll be working as a bioarchaeologist this summer. There is at least a little bit of foot bone in the coffin... I can't wait until they either get the bones out or get an endoscope in there to see what's left. It'll be pretty amazing to find out this individual's life history from his or her skeletal remains.
