Big Dig Unearths Artifacts and
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.

People knew back then, and even as far back as Ancient Egypt, that to effectively deal with lice you have to remove the eggs.
