Loki stone, Kirkby Stephen church by abridgeover. The 8th century Loki Stone is small and is decorated by a carved figure, chained, with horns. It is one of the few physical survivals from the time when the Vikings had settled in this area. It's thought to be part of a larger cross.

Voynich Manuscript - Carbon dating puts the publication of the book back around 1404 to 1438. The illustrations are of strange diagrams, odd events and plants that match no known species, and written in a language that no one understands.

The Bezeklik Thousand Buddha Caves are complex of Buddhist cave grottos dating from the 5th to 14th century between the cities of Turpan and Shanshan (Loulan) at the north-east of the Taklamakan Desert near the ancient ruins of Gaochang in the Mutou Valley, a gorge in the Flaming Mountains, China. They are high on the cliffs of the west Mutou Valley under the Flaming Mountains, and most of the surviving caves date from the Uyghur Kara-Khoja kingdom around the 10th to 13th centuries
