Indian Pipe, monotropa uniflora, also known as the ghost or corpse plant. Such a fascinating plant! And I think very appropriate for the time of year. I found these growing in a forest north of where I live. I’ve never seen them again since.

It seems that many cultures have seen these plants as ghostly parasites, though often used for healing a wide array of ailments, they were known to be connected to the spirit world.

It is in fact a parasitic plant, because it doesn’t produce chlorophyll it instead feeds off of plants that do. It is very rare.

"Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons."

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

Yep, never should put a preassumption that “of course all soldiers are men - and have been”.
