Residents of a market town have been left stumped by these mysterious tree carvings thought to have been created an anonymous guerrilla artist. The astounding carvings have transformed regular trees into a dragon, a kingfisher and a ghostly figure. The local civic society in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire, said it is bemused over who came up with the eye-catching intricate designs, which are between 10 and 20 feet high. They said they wanted to thank the elusive artist for creating a new tourist attraction for the area, which now goes alongside the popular Mother Shipton’s Cave. The carvings are thought to have appeared about two months ago, but no-one has ever seen the artist leaving their creative imprint on the tree trunks. The civic society is currently trying to track down the artist and is urging them to get in touch in an attempt to solve the mystery.

Here’s an awesome little piece of history:
Archaeologists in the Burnt City have discovered what appears to be an ancient prosthetic eye. What makes this discovery exceptionally awesome is the striking description of how the owner and her false eye would have appeared while she was still alive and blinking:
[The eye] has a hemispherical form and a diameter of just over 2.5 cm (1 inch). It consists of very light material, probably bitumen paste. The surface of the artificial eye is covered with a thin layer of gold, engraved with a central circle (representing the iris) and gold lines patterned like sun rays. The female remains found with the artificial eye was 1.82 m tall (6 feet), much taller than ordinary women of her time. On both sides of the eye are drilled tiny holes, through which a golden thread could hold the eyeball in place. Since microscopic research has shown that the eye socket showed clear imprints of the golden thread, the eyeball must have been worn during her lifetime. The woman’s skeleton has been dated to between 2900 and 2800 BCE.
So she was an extraordinarily tall woman walking around wearing an engraved golden eye patterned with rays like a tiny sun. What an awesome sight that must have been.
