A Bony Smile

DNA testing is underway in an attempt to find the remains of the model for Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa. Yes, a bit creepy, but also a fascinating opportunity to get a look at how 16th century nobility lived, and died. Physical anthropology is an often under-appreciated window into how our ancestors lived. Hopefully this will throw some much needed light onto the field.
