Woman in the Iron Coffin

Homicide? This body in the iron coffin? They opened it as a crime scene investigation. But no. They were dealing with 150-year-old remains.

Definitely one of the more interesting smallpox stories I’ve run across. I had to share this Newsweek article with you. The photo above is the facial reconstruction included in the article.

150-year-old remains identified

Watch the story unfold on PBS tonight, October 3, 2018.


In my previous post, “A Blog by Any Other Name,” you learned I’m changing things a bit from my twice monthly blog. So watch for different kinds of posts–articles by me, other articles shared, book reviews, and maybe a few surprises now and then.

So what do you think of my website’s new look?

Do you have a website? A blog? A newsletter? If you have the task of marketing something—your book, your service, your ideas—how do you budget your time and energy? Let me know.

Be watching for the next of “Bee’s Articles.” Stay connected.


One thought on “Woman in the Iron Coffin

  1. Bee, I watched the “Woman in the Iron Coffin” and was fascinated by the amount of detective work that went in to discovering her identity. What a beautiful woman she was and what a shame to have such a devastating disease take her life at a young age. Thank you for recommending it.
