Scientists revived 400-year-old plants frozen 400 years ago in Little Ice Age.

Scientists performed a little wonder and revived 400-year-old plants that were frozen 400 years ago during the Little Ice Age. I have never heard of the Little Ice Age. Must have been sleeping during that particular history class. The plant called Bryophytes have been found at the Teardrop Glacier in the Canadian Arctic.

The plants have been frozen during the Little Ice Age during 1550 and 1850. The plants flourished again under lab conditions giving insight into how our planet recovers from the cyclic coverage of ice. More details on BBC.
