Van Eldijk spent weeks finding 70 scales that were embedded in the ancient soil, teasing each one out using a needle tipped with a human nose hair

This could mean a new source of income for me.

Of course, it may well be that, in a few years, we will find flowers antedating them again. That is what’s wonderful about science: you never know when your knowledge may be obsoleted :slight_smile:
