    Mysterious blue pigment in medieval woman's teeth gives scientists 'bombshell' clue | Fox News

    -----
    This evidence shows that women at that time, particularly nuns, were "not only literate but also prolific producers and consumers of books."

    Though her name remains unknown, the woman who was buried in a German churchyard was probably a highly skilled artist and scribe.

    "It's kind of a bombshell for my field — it's so rare to find material evidence of women's artistic and literary work in the Middle Ages,"
    -----

    What's she do? Eat the book with the lapis lazuli?

    Smurfs. Gotta be Smurfs.

    So nuns killed off the smurfs? Or was Poppa smurf just really happy?

    the earliest know "crayon" eater?

    I know...lets assume she was a genius who was very artistic rather than an ignorant who just liked to eat her crayons. stunning find....

    The feminists will snuff this out. Goes against their narrative.
    Women were treated as breeding stock and servants in the middle ages. Anything counter to that is a lie!

    I think Papa Smurf must have been a very happy guy, as the nuns didn't kill off the smurfs. My baby brother did it...

    It's the Smurfs fault.

    If they weren't born so delicious, they'd still be around today.

    It was once a very common practice to wet paintbrushes with one’s mouth in order to produce very fine lines, at least as recently as the 1940s.

    A significant amount of the women who worked producing radiologically illuminated instruments for our military came down with mouth cancer years later.

    as was stated in the article....in either case it is speculation. Maybe the woman was an artist and maybe she was a mentally challenged medieval crayon eater and they gave her the paints and brushes to keep her occupied...we'll never know....

    I thought they called them nuns because: they don't want nun, never had nun, ain't gonna get nun, etc?

    Do it.

    These cretins won't stop until women built and invented everything while men drooled in the corner when they weren't rapin' an' killin'.

    You really think any of the rocket surgeons around here actually read the article?
    Read headline and post stupid joke is the formula for posting success on NES. [rofl][rofl][rofl]

    that stuff was nasty.
    back in the 70's...the air force went around to every air museum in the country, and removed all the radium painted instruments...due to their lethality. Even though the museums protested....they would not listen to their arguments and just ripped them out.

    The woman was obviously a nun. This was the priest who ran the monastery.
