FLORENCE, Italy, Sept. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Was it malaria, as claimed? Or was it a double murder, as rumored? What killed the two sons of Cosimo I? After half a millennium and a fascinating scientific investigation, these and other lingering questions may finally be answered. MUMMY DETECTIVE: CRYPT OF THE MEDICI follows a team of Italian specialists, joined by mummy expert and TLC presenter Dr. Bob Brier, as they exhume the bodies of Italy's ancient first family and use the latest forensic tools to investigate how they lived and died.
I found it very interesting.
