Beachcombing’s Bizarre History Blog

Some posts I recommend:

Victorian Lesbian Cobblers (not warm berry desserts, but a historical canard)
Funeral Fights (regarding “the superstition that the last person buried in a church-yard has, in addition to his other troubles, to carry water to allay the thirst (in Purgatory) of all those previously buried there”)
Jokes from World War I (actual humor was strictly rationed during wartime, so they made do with what they had)
