Subway work in Greece unearths ancient gold wreath - Excavation work during construction of a new subway network in Greece’s second largest city has discovered an ancient wreath made of gold that was buried with a woman some 2,300 years ago.

Juliane Koepcke was in an airplane that exploded over the Peruvian rain forest. Still strapped into her seat, she fell about 10,000 feet, crashing through the canopy to the forest floor. She suffered a broken collarbone and gash to one arm, as well as more minor injuries. Koepcke rifled the plane's wreckage for food, discovering only some candy. With this to survive on, she found a stream and followed it downstream to civilization, a journey of nine days.
