We’re starting our weekend early at the blog today, just because–it’s summer!

So I came across this picture on Pinterest the other day: The caption is, as with so many other things one can find on the Internet, utter bullshit, but it did make me curious. The picture itself is apparently real. In the first third of the 19th century, some graves were enclosed with an iron cage, called a Read More
