When Cromwell died in 1658, his body was embalmed and secretly buried at Westminster Abbey. He had played a leading role in the trial and execution of King Charles I, but the experiment he led collapsed within two years after his death. When Charles' son, Charles II, assumed the throne in 1661, he had Cromwell's remains dug up and re-buried beneath the gallows...except for his head, which was placed on a pole and mounted atop Westminster Hall.
The grisly head stayed there for the remainder of the reign of Charles II.

Hey, hey, hey........
I got the same as Barbara L.

So, lt, where was this earth worm? Did they keep it in a jar somewhere? Pretty big jar! I bet that was some healthy soil!

I can't believe Daniel Pearl has been that long already.
Telly, "Who loves ya, babe?" My mother loved him, and ended every phone conversation with that line.

I knew truth for some odd reason, but didn't remember the 3 year thing.
My father always says, "use you head for something besides a hat rack (LOL). Maybe that's where he got it from!?!

Thanks, lt.
When next we see ya.........................................

Hi QS,
The Microchaetidae from south Africa are most well known because of Microchaetus rappi, the longest worm in the world (6.7 metres) (22 ft) which was found at the edge of a road. I could not find mention of whether or not the specimen was preserved.
BTW, most members of this family are far smaller than this.
