Elder Lady Mummy - Queen Tiye The so-called “Elder Lady” has survived more than three millennia with a full head of auburn hair falling across her shoulders. A strand of this hair was matched to a lock of hair that had been discovered in King Tutankhamun’s tomb. The keepsake had been kept in a tiny coffin inscribed to his beloved grandmother Queen Tiye, and DNA from the hair and the mummy proved the relationship in 2010.

Viking Burial Mask - Dating from the 10th Century, this is believed to be a relic from the tomb of an unknown Viking warrior. The form is based primarily on the pelvis of a bull, which represents strength and virility. The spinal column and rib cage, which protect the warrior's eyes, are those of a young wolf. The ram's horns give the warrior means to ward off the demons who might attack him on his journey after death. | Michael Bahl | Viking Burial Mask

The Mullamast Stone, from 500-600 in Ireland. There are 4 blade marks on the left side of the stone and 2 deep ones on top, suggesting that the stone was used as part of a “sword in the stone” kingship ritual. The perpetuation of the importance of the “sword in the stone,” which comes from Arthurian legend, demonstrates the continuity of Celtic rituals even after the arrival of Christianity in Ireland.

This is a pretty amazing find from Norway. It is a largely complete wooden ski, which recently emerged from a glacier. The ski measures 172 cm in length by 14.5 cm in width and contains leather straps for securing the foot. It is estimated to be c. 1300 years old and was recovered from a site that has produced hundreds of artefacts in recent years, due to the receding ice sheet.
