''Fully dressed and preserved 350-year-old corpse of French noblewoman found''

I'm not sure why but this doesn't sit well.

To many questions unanswered in the article. For example why were the remains in this chapel disturbed in the first place?

Were religious authorities in agreement? Where is re interment, after study, planned? Apparently the local authorities were compliant.

What specific knowledge can be gained from forensic examination, of these remains, reference this region and time period; that is, in all probability, not already known?

I presume nor assume nothing.

I am old supporter of archaeo's and their doubt.. have assisted in digs myself as a surveyors assistant.

But I am also an extreme advocate for respectful treatment of the dead.

They have no voice when disturbed. No matter the scientific value that can be claimed.

Only the living can defend them.

As such this one doesn't sit well. If for no other reason than to research 'holy' ground disturbs me unless real and guaranteed respect is in evidence and reported.

Apparently the 14th Century convent where she was found (she was also dressed as a nun), is being converted into convention centre.
The body has been stripped naked, her clothes will be displayed and she will be reburied.
