I’m gonna try to get some sleep now. Thanks so much for sticking around today and for all your supportive messages.
Update: There is a chance that the skull of Luzia survived the fire. They are still trying to get to the room where she used to be. She was locked in a metal chest when the fire started. #MuseuNacional

Firefighters found a skull amid the rubble. It may be Luzia, the oldest human fossil ever found in the Americas. A group of experts will analyze it now.
Although our government does not really care about what's happening, some people are doing everything they can to recover some artifacts.

This firefighter burned his fingers today as he searched for Luzia.
The heat emanating from the pieces of iron melted the glove he had on.
I'll continue updating you from time to time, if you want me to.
