Richard III Continued

As we continue waiting for DNA testing confirmation of the identity of the skeleton in the carpark - another skeleton was found as well.  A woman.  Nobody is postulating this one might instead be the reviled king ...

A tomb has also been under contention - if these bones are the king's, they're going to be so popular.  and it's Leicester Cathedral for the win, y'all.

So of course I clicked on the "woman" link, thinking that the term would be defined, or there would be a photo or artist's rendition of one, but I was fooled again. Much like the archaeologists in the trenches, who reportedly sport T-shirts now that proclaim, "I came to dig for Dick, and all I got was this Jane."

I'm pretty sure it's not POSSIBLE to define "woman" - and this blog might not be the best source on Teh Intarwebs for, ah, artists' renderings of them ... *Grin*

I agree with the impossibility, which is exactly what makes women Osum!

On the other hand, I do think that this blog is a good source of womanimages. To wit (and this is only the quik version, mind you):

Hee. Aww.

I'd blush, but nobody would buy that.
