Vandals decapitate 800-year-old mummy in crypt at Dublin church

Authorities in Ireland on Monday said that vandals decapitated an 800-year-old mummy that was held inside a crypt at a church in Dublin. A number of other mummies were ’desecrated’ by the vandals, including the 400-year-old remains of a nun. The 800-year-old mummy, known as the ’The Crusader’ locally, was found turned upside down with its head removed.

I can't stand the desecration of history, not even history of people I dislike. 200 years from now, if the Taliban have remnants of their history, its put in a museum, then someone destroyed it, I'd be just as pissed. I used the Taliban, due to some personal experiences, let's not have an unnecessary conversation. This, to me, is very important to the UK's culture, maybe not a nice and flowery history, but great history, none the less.

If and when those responsible are caught let's hope that they will be punished to the fullest extent of the law.
