Big Dig Unearths
Offers a Glimpse Into The Past
Folks have always known
that combing is essential
Many artifacts from Boston's past have been
uncovered during construction of the massive highway project termed 'The
Big Dig'. These artifacts are now being displayed at the
Commonwealth Museum so that the public may take a peek into the lives of
those who came before us. One particular item of interest is a hair
comb designed both for normal grooming as well as removal
of head lice and nits.
The Patriot Ledger - 12/31/02
People knew back then, and even as far back as
Ancient Egypt, that to
effectively deal with lice you have to remove the eggs.
