Blood of Louis XVI 'found in gourd container'
I just love the work of DNA-- how interesting!
I have a bit of charcoal related to be from the destruction of The Great Fire of London, in 1666. It's in a glassed display box with a letter from the family who owned it in, I believe, the 1840s, stating the case for its authenticity.
Doesn't top Louis XVI in a gourd though. Alas, no DNA to prove or disprove it.
Relics of the charcoal sort have a long-storied history, as do fakes of same.
That's so cool if it's not a fake. There must be a way to check for authenticity? Have you ever taken it to these antique shops? Professional ones, of course. There used to be a show called the Antique Road Show. Is it sill on? Anyhoo, it could be worth mucho $$. Who knows.
