“This may be a 17th C charmstone…where round crystals are found set in silver on a chain for dipping into liquids as charms against disease. Such crystal balls were often found in Northern European burials of the early Middle Ages (especially Germanic, Merovingian and Anglo-Saxon). Meaney suggests these balls were frequently complemented with a sieve-spoon and were mostly found in female burials.”

Easy Molding Update For a kitchen with a vintage vibe, glue gingerbread appliques (available at home centers) on door panels. These affordable wood pieces come in many styles and are easy to adhere to cabinet doors using wood glue. Kick up the vintage look by applying a thin coat of burnt umber glaze to the doors and gingerbread. Wipe off while wet to get desired effect.

Buddhists play an instrument called a kangling, translated as “leg” (kang) “flute” (ling), it is the Tibetan name for a trumpet made from a human femur. Tibetan Buddhists prefer to use the femur from the corpse of a criminal or a person who died a violent death, but in pinch the femur of a respected teacher may be substituted.
Human Thighbone Kangling - With its wailing, eerie sound, the bone trumpet, or kangling, is intrinsic to the otherworldly atmosphere created by the Chöd ritual. The kangling is part of an ensemble of sacred instruments that emerged from the tantric crucible of India some fifteen hundred years ago.

Balloon Wedding (1888) at the Rhode Island State Fair
The September 27, 1888, wedding of Margaret Buckley and Edward T. Davis was held at the Rhode Island State Fair. An estimated 40,000 watched as they entered the “special ‘bridal car’ of the balloon, held down by 24 men at guy ropes.” At dusk, the balloon landed in a swamp about thirty miles away. The wedding party was “obliged to cling to the ropes above the basket to keep out of the water.” Afterwards, Allen and the Davises reenacted their wedding for a photographer in a studio.

The woman was 8 months pregnant when she died, excavated from the ruins of Æbelholt Abbey, Denmark.
A skeleton of a mother, and her baby, who both died during her pregnancy.
Pregnant woman and child's remains? If this is a real - the baby appears to be full term, and is in breech position. The mother and baby both died in childbirth?
"Died in Childbirth" Womans and babies skeleton, the cause of death (I am guessing) would be a breech birth.

Ewald Redam (far left) was the principal athlete in a troupe of German strength performers who were active in the 20s. During WW I, Ewald, his Latvian life, Ludmilla, and two other athletes formed the Four Redams. The act was a great hit, even more remarkable because the women got as much attention for their strength feats as the men. In the 1930s, the group added two more strong women.
Odin ("The Furious One") is a major god in Germanic mythology, especially in Norse mythology. In many Norse sources he is the Allfather of the gods and the ruler of Asgard. In Norse mythology, Huginn (from Old Norse "thought") and Muninn (Old Norse "memory" or "mind") are a pair of ravens that fly all over the world, Midgard, and bring information to the god.

Photography: People – This photo was taken in 1912/13, of Hans Nielsen Langseth (b.Norway, 1846–d.North Dakota, 1927)
Most Ironic Deaths In History - Hans Steininger is known in the history books as the man with the longest beard (4.5 feet). Artists have fondly sketched his glorious expression of facial hair and even immortalized his crowning achievement in stone. However, his hairy asset is what brought him to sudden death. As he was caught in a fire, he accidentally tripped over his long beard, broke his neck and died.
smithsonian: “ You may have a great beard, but it’s not as great as Hans Langseth’s, pictured above. His 17-ft long beard is in our Museum of Natural History where scientists can study it. Why study a...

Codex Runicus, a vellum manuscript from around 1300 AD containing one of the oldest and best preserved texts of the Scanian Law, written entirely in runes.
Texts, Codex Runicus, Manuscript Illuminated, File Codexrunicus Jpeg, Runes, Latin Alphabet, Runic Alphabet, Ancient Language, Alphabet Art
Runes are the letters in a set of related alphabets known as runic alphabets, which were used to write various Germanic languages before the adoption of the Latin alphabet and for specialized purposes thereafter. Ruins were not thought to have magical powers by their original creators/users, only afterward when the language and culture of those people had been wiped out by Christianisation were they attributed to the dark arts.
The Codex Runicus is a codex written in medieval runes around the year 1300 AC, which includes the oldest preserved Nordic provincial law, Scanian Law, and is one of the few runic texts found on parchment. Each rune corresponds to a letter of the Latin alphabet. It is considered by most scholars a nostalgic or revivalist use of runes and not a natural step from the Nordic runic script culture of the Viking Age to the medieval Latin manuscript culture.
