Medieval Death Bot

Several times a day, we get a new yet old obituary from a bot that Tweets reports of deaths at Medieval Death Bot. They aren't limited to royalty or any particular class, and include deaths from sources available on the web. The causes of death are intriguing, as they raise more questions than can possibly be answered.

The account, developed by Soren Häxan, also has a related Tumblr blog with information answering questions that arise about medieval deaths. For example, here's a post on why so many people were killed by "clerks." 

Most of the deaths are violent, as deaths from natural causes appear to be excluded unless they are particularly interesting. -via b3ta
