Do Cells and Their Microscopic Parts Stick Around After Death?

By Rich Sobel

Did you know that there is a branch of scientific study called taphonomy? I sure didn’t.

It’s pretty amazing to realize that there’s just so much out there we don’t know! And never will. But I have to admit, when I do find something new and unusual that I’m interested in or think I should know something about, I’m both humbled and excited.

And taphonomy* just became one of those areas for me.
