A skeleton of a mother, and her baby, who both died during her pregnancy.
this is so fucking cool
how on earth is this cool this is literally the remains of a mother and a child she never even got to see. have some respect smh
its cool because its an intact skeleton within an intact skeleton. sad sure, but still cool, get off the pedestal.
You can appreciate the science while still feeling empathy for the person. That’s the entire point of archaeology.

she sat in the water for like an hour, just staring at the water peacefully
