Charlotte's [Ancient] Web

BBCnews is carrying this report summarizing the discovery of the oldest fossilized spiderweb found to-date. Located in a chunk of fossilized amber found in Spain, the web is not complete but is intact enough to convince scientists it was a classic "orb" web. The find also includes some of the web's victims, all of whom met their demise some 110 million years ago.
