‘Lousy’ Study Shows Clothing 70,000 Years Old

This is interesting from the viewpoint of writing Fantasy involving primitive societies. I often read about pre-technology societies that seem clean and noble, but it would be almost certain that they would have lice.


I remember reading an account of Thomas Becket’s funeral where it was described how the lice fled from his body as it cooled. Thomas Becket was (in 1170) one of the most learned and civilized men in Europe.

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.
