Apparently a group of Italian historians/scientists/archeologists have nothing on their slate as they are digging up, or rather have dug up, the body of a 16th century warrior and mercenary captain, Giovanni de Medici of the Black Bands.
The Black Bands were a mercenary troop, heavily armored, mounted on destriers. They were well known for carrying arquebus in battle. They fought in numerous campaigns throughout the 1520s. They took their name from the black arm bands they wore in morning for the death of Pope Leo X, their master.
Giovanni was killed when a ball from a small cannon shattered his leg.
He lived the kind of lives we have at in our RPGs!
They are digging him up to determine what kind of surgery they used to work on the famed Captain.
