Or rather, slurp. That’s what the marsupial Thylacosmilus atrox might have done with its sharp saber teeth.

When an archaeologist excavated ancient coin molds in Tadmekka, Mali, in 2005, it triggered a several-year exploration of how medieval Africans purified the gold they were using for their currency. Now scientists have recreated the advanced process behind the clever, sophisticated purification method.

St Anne’s Castle is supposedly the oldest licensed inn in England. As one might expect for a site with so much history, it is home to many alleged hauntings by wandering spirits, including that of an accused witch executed at the crossroads near the inn.

Researchers found that more than 1,000 tons of microplastics—the equivalent of somewhere between 120 million and 300 million plastic bottles—fall across 11 protected areas in the American West each year, including prized natural areas as the Craters of the Moon in Idaho and Canyonlands in Utah.

Tucked away in the rolling countryside of northern Sardinia, the Church of the Holy Trinity was built in 1116 as a gift for the monks after a judge asked to be blessed with a child. After his wife gave birth, the judge ordered the construction of the church, and it was completed in 1116.
