Unearthing the history of celiac disease - 1 AD!

The ANSA article "Ancient Roman gluten death seen" published yesterday highlights a theory that a young woman in the first century a.d. died from celiac disease. (I am going with theory here, because nothing has been published with any findings yet, specifically I will be stoked to see the genetic testing!)

I don't know why I am so excited by this... but I am!
