A mouse is found in a royal wreck




REMAINS of a long dead house mouse have been found in the wreck of a Bronze Age royal ship. That makes it the earliest rodent stowaway ever recorded, and proof of how house mice spread around the world.





The cargo of ebony, ivory, silver and gold - including a gold scarab with the name of the Egyptian queen Nefertiti - indicates it was a royal vessel.


He must have been going for the goat cheese.

Wouldn't it be a royal mouse then? Or maybe ancient cat food for royal cat? We will never know. How many important secrets history is hiding from us ...
