I'm posting it here, although if the Mods want to move it, they are obviously welcome.

I was chatting with a freind about Archaeology as science and Archeaolgy an an Arts subject. Today I find the perfect example of both in one article:

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/archaeology/fourthousand-year-old-goldadorned-skeleton-found-near-the-royal-borough-in-windsor-8581819.html

Article focuses on the interesting scientific work related to the find. Then slips in this:

>Men and women from the Stonehenge era were often interred in opposing directions – men’s heads pointing north and women’s heads pointing south. Europe-wide archaeological and anthropological research over recent years suggests that women may have been associated with the warm and sunny south, while mere men may have seen themselves as embodying the qualities of the colder harder north!

If anyone else has any similar examples, please post 'em here, I'm beginning a small collection for future pub talk.
Expand all images.
