I'm watching this show - Unearthed - Hunt For The First Pyramid on Science channel. They found, in the tomb of what is a high official so they think, a fingerprint in the paintings on the wall. They are surmising that this fingerprint was most likely to be from a painter who had to be someone special to work with the paints. The paints were made from gems and were highly sought after so only those who were high up in the hierarchy had access to these.
That's the working story. I don't care if it's the truth or not but that fingerprint got me thinking about trying to find out who it was.
They didn't have genealogy.com back then and I doubt there is any dna in the fingerprint(then again?) but , and this is where the odd thought came in - maybe genealogy could be traced through the fingerprint itself. .
