Wow I’m impressed, this is the first time discovering that a relic is proven even older than expected but is still considered to have lost its value. Apparently some chemist or pharmacist in the middle of the 19th century thought it’d be really cool to burn a little some mummy and pretend its Jeanne d’arc’s remains… I mean imagine their faces when they notice it’s fake! Hahahaha
Well not only no one noticed it’s fake but even the Church itself took believed it and declared it as genuine! My god, this dude must’ve laughed his ass out, not to mention that he made lots of money.
But if this proves anything it proves how valueless the mummies were at that time, in fact there were so many of them and no one knew what to do with them. In fact what mattered to the people was the gold, the yucky mummies were just there to annoy them and scare the ladies. But of course the mystical magic of death soon caught there attention and they started crushing the mummies to make some medicinal cures for incurable illnesses. The bandages were used as fuel for trains (well much more human than using prisoners as fuel right?).
