In Paleolithic rock etchings, in the lines of millennia-old historical texts, and among intricate illustrations of medieval manuscripts, we find displays and descriptions of astonishing people, both real and unreal.

We take you on a journey through the weird and wonderful world of odd bodies, odd burials, and odd people.
