Wow, science news for the first time in weeks!

(Apologies about that, by the way...it takes several hours to make those posts, and I'm just way too busy lately. Crashdown is a very time-intensive hobby.)

Anyway, the lost kingdom of Tambora has been uncovered. It was buried by a volcanic explosion in 1815. But this is the graf that leaped out at me:
"Somewhere, beneath the ash and pumice of Tambora Town, there is the ruins of the royal palace. That may contain valuables belonging to the King and his court," Sigurdsson said.
Can you say "grave robbers"? I knew you could.
