Brazil Emperor's Toothbrush

Archeologist Luiza Gomes washes a porcelain plate fragment in a subway expansion area in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Wednesday, Sept. 18, 2013. The area, which is now being used as a construction site for Rio’s massive subway expansion projects, has not only yielded an impressive number of objects but also pieces in remarkably good condition dating from the 17th through the 19th centuries. The plot, which was once the site of a slaughterhouse, is near the former imperial palace and is thought to have once been used as a landfill by the imperial family and others, team members said.
