Arthur’s Seat coffins. Two of the 17 miniature coffins found in 1836.

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.

Ectodactyly describes the condition where some of the fingers of the hands or feet are missing or fused, leaving the appendage looking similar to a lobster’s claw.


A short story that I read in The Best American Short Stories of 2008. It made me consider how a relationship with someone toxic has the ability to overtake you completely. I also though of my experiences with a loss of power in relationships, which can lead to an unhealthy search for reclamation of power as a way to escape.
