killing - I really did not know if I could come up with something but accidently we went for a trip today with my history lovers friends and visited the ossuary in Mělník (from 16th century).
It is In a crypt under the st.Peter´s church in Mělník .The crypt was originally intended to be a final resting place of the Bohemian princesses and queens who resided in Mělník at the time.
However, an epidemic of the plague in the early 1520’s filled the small cemetery that surrounded the church and the crypt was pressed into service as an ossuary; a storage place for the older bones that were exhumed to make way for the new.

second helping anyone? :)

Wonderful sense of movement on the first shot - that is just perfect. The crypt shot is intriguing.
