Egyptian Pillow Fossil.

Andy Gize, Judith Seath, and Rosalie David discovered the fossil of an unusual Egyptian pillow made out of woven plant fiber encased in wax coating.

The rare artifact, which dates to 2055-1985 B.C., suggests Cleopatra and other well-known ancient Egyptians may have snoozed on relatively fluffy pillows that perhaps biodegraded over time, leaving the hard headrests for modern archaeologists to find.
