    Edinburgh Death Dolls~ In June 1836 five young boys, hunting for rabbits on the north-eastern slopes Arthur's Seat, Edinburgh, found 17 miniature coffins hidden inside a cave. They were arranged under slates on three tiers, two tiers of eight and one solitary coffin on the top. Each coffin, only 95mm in length, contained a little wooden figure, expertly carved with painted black boots and custom made clothes.
