Bone Detectives

Good show on the Science  channel. The show Bone detectives had a case of a 3rd cent AD Egyptian whom was uncovered. He had a large skull injury. After testing all the weapons of the time, their conclusion? He was killed by a sling.  They even used a native Egyptian who could use a sling.  The wound was an indentation about 2 by 3 inches, with radiating damage.

VIOLENCE ALONG THE NILE
Thurs, Feb. 21, at 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. ET/PT
Our host will retrace the steps of a Coptic priest, a member of an early Christian sect established in Egypt in 50 A.D. based on the teachings of St. Mark, from remote desert monasteries to the seaport of Alexandria, on a quest to learn exactly how and why he died. World-renowned mummy expert Dr. Salima Ikram (a superstar on the Egyptology scene) will join Scotty to examine Coptic mummies and attempt to reconstruct their lives and deaths from the evidence at hand.
