I want to draw attention to a great info-graphic spread in Discover Magazine's photo gallery. Dead People Science Won't Let R.I.P. is a really interesting and fun way to do an article about all the different old deaths that modern technology has been able to shed light on.
From King Tut to Copernicus the graphic gives really good, concise descriptions of how certain historical figures died, why their deaths were controversial (or at least their cause of death disputed), and how modern technology helped clear up the details. Its definitely worth checking out, not only to learn a few things about science and history, but also to check out how Discover is doing their gallery articles.
