Tycho Brahe lived from 1546 to 1601. As you know from history class he was a Danish astronomer that did some pretty amazing research in his lifetime. See Wikipedia for more background on Tycho Brahe. Now a team of Danish and Czech researchers under the leadership of medieval archaeologist Jens Vellev of Aarhus University are opening Brahe's Tomb on Monday Nov. 15th.

The project's aim is to find out exact details about Tycho Brahe's general health and medical prescriptions. Equipped with CT scanning, DNA testing and PIXE analysis the team is opening the tomb located at Týn Church in Prague, Czech Republic.

The tomb has already been opened once in 1901, but the information from that event did not contain much data that the researches can use. Why they want to know Brahe's health condition is not quite clear to me, but the project could definitely be used in future series of the CSI franchise. How about calling it CSI: Medieval?

More details about the project can be found here.
