Magical creatures have long been the subject or books, movies, and television. They were even more prevalent back hundreds of years ago. Our knowledge base is so much broader today than it was even a hundred years ago. We’ve pretty much closed the door on the chance of us finding dragons or fairies in our world. At least we thought. A home in London that used to be an orphanage uncovered something very interesting….and extremely disturbing in 2006. They found over 5,000 skeletons in the basement! They’re definitely not the type of skeletons you’re thinking of though. You have to see these things to believe them….and even then you might not believe them.
The man who “found” these remains was named Thomas Merrylin. He was a Crypto-naturalist, Fringe Zoologist and Xeno -Archeologist. Basically that means he searched for creatures that almost all scientists agree never existed. He was born in 1782. According to some he possessed unnaturally long life, which some say was the result of him practicing black magic. He is said to have not looked a day over 40 when he was well into his 80’s.
The orphanage was originally the home of Merrylin. In 1942 he contacted an orphanage and asked if they would be willing to accept a large London town house as a donation. They accepted, but with one caveat. The house could never be torn down and the basement never opened. Well in 2006 a foundation inspection was done, and the door to the basement was opened. Inside they found 5,000 skeletons of strange creatures from myth and legend!
Merrylin is said to have traveled the world over with his father, who was also into the study of weird creatures that probably never existed. After his father’s death he became a recluse and buried himself in his work.
This whole story definitely sounds a little fishy though. This is supposed to be the remains of an infant werewolf….but come on, who’s believing that?
The collection is supposedly the culmination of Merrylin’s life work.
He even supposedly had the remains of vampires in this disturbing collection.
There is absolutely no way this collection is real, I mean how would no one else have found things like this with modern technology?
Apparently demon babies are a thing, who knew?
Apparently this guy is the only one in the world to have captured an actual alien.
Whoever made these things has some real skill though. Back in the 1800’s you may have been convinced that these were actual remains of creatures that existed.
These make me think of the creatures you would find in a Harry Potter book.
This guy looks like the dog from How The Grinch Stole Christmas!
Who would think to make things like these? I’m 100% sure that these things aren’t real, but the work that went into making them is definitely worth admiring. They look extremely life-like, and definitely had me questioning my eyes for a second. I’d be very interested to learn the back story behind these things.
