The opening of Tycho Brahe’s tomb on Monday, November 15 will be one of the biggest highlights so far in a project which aims to give new and more exact information on the world famous Danish astronomer’s general health and medical prescriptions. Archeologist Jens Vellev from Aarhus University in Denmark is the project leader and has spent ten years of his life getting all the permits to open the grave in the Tyn Church in Prague, Czech Republic. Using modern techniques such as CT scanning, DNA testing and PIXE analysis on Tycho Brahe’s remains, a team of Danish and Czech researchers, under the leadership of medieval archaeologist Jens Vellev, hopes to gain as much reliable information as possible relating to the scientist’s health and medical history. Available video includes general views and soundbites from Jens Vellev, Medieval Archaeology.
