Scientists discover beheaded man’s brain self-preserved for 2,600 years. That’s quite the headline, but it’s true! Via Inverse:

Around 2,600 years ago, about the time humans started making steel and building weapons, a man lost his head. Subsequently, the real-life, Iron Age Ned Stark’s lopped-off skull became buried in clay-rich mud, and remained there until York Archeological Trust researchers dug it up in 2008. They made the finding in Heslington, a suburban village near modern-day York, England.

What they found inside the ancient man’s skull shocked them: A large chunk of the brain was in remarkable shape, considering its age. The brain tissue, now known as the “Heslington brain”, had shrunk slightly over the years, but still contained its hallmark grooves and folds.

It’s considered the oldest preserved brain ever found in Eurasia, and is likely the best-preserved ancient brain overall. In a study released this week in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface researchers reveal why it’s been able to stand the test of time.
