    LOL...that's funny.

    I'm intrigued they were able to find any DNA at all but it's scary when one thinks how the the bubonic plague reshaped economic and social landscapes with its decimation of whole populations.

    Dental care was not so good in the middle ages. Lots of plaque has been found.

    Interesting insight into life and death in the 14th and 15th centuries. I find it scary though that they're using the DNA of the plague that they extracted from the skeletons in their research. I hope there's no....outbreak....
