BBC: Brazil museum fire: Prized ‘Luzia’ fossil skull recovered. “Most of the skull from a prized 12,000-year-old fossil nicknamed Luzia has been recovered from the wreckage of a fire in Brazil’s National Museum. The 200-year-old building in Rio de Janeiro burned down in September, destroying almost all of its artefacts. But on Friday the museum’s director announced that 80% of Luzia’s skull fragments had been identified.”
