Two types of materials were sampled as part of an investigation of the relics of the Holy Catholic Church of the Apostles St Philip and St James in the Basilica dei Santi Apostoli in Rome: bone- and mummy-materials and architectural samples. The analyses encompassed radiocarbon dating, thermoluminescence dating, gas and liquid chromatographic separation with mass spectrometric detection, X-Ray fluorescence, X-Ray diffraction, inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry, Raman spectroscopy, and…

Approaching mercury distribution in burial environment using PLS-R modelling
TLDR
A soil multi-sampling approach in two burials dated to the 5th to 6th centuries AD revealed that the decomposition of the bodies not only was the primary source of mercury to the soil but also responsible for the pedogenetic transformation of the sediments and the formation of soil components with the ability to retain mercury.

ON THE EMBALMMENT OF S. FRANCESCO CARACCIOLO
TLDR
The Italian saint Francesco Caracciolo died in June 1608 and his body was transported from Agnone in the Abruzzo region to the city of Naples, where he was interred, and there is a case of excess Hg in the remains, which has distinct parallels with those of other Renaissance burials.

TLDR
To reconstruct diverse diet, social stratification, and migration of the inhabitants of Roman Ephesus and the distinct group of gladiators, stable carbon, nitrogen, and sulphur isotope analysis were applied, and inorganic bone elements (strontium, calcium) were determined.

Short Article The Use of Mercury against Pediculosis in the Renaissance: The Case of Ferdinand II of Aragon, King of Naples, 1467–96
TLDR
The hair samples of Ferdinand II of Aragon, King of Naples, whose mummy is preserved in the Basilica of San Domenico Maggiore in Naples, showed a high content of mercury, with a value of 827ppm, demonstrating that in the Renaissance mercury was applied locally not only to treat syphilis, but also to prevent or eliminate lice infestation.
