Creepy skeletons of winged humans, bodies of mythical creatures and even aliens have been unearthed in a London home.
The ghastly relics were the collection of Thomas Merrylin, an 18th century aristocrat with a taste for the unusual. They were apparently found sealed in the basement of a London house in 2006, and the macabre findings might just change science as we know it. Now they’re being kept at the Merrylin Cryptid Museum, a bizarre collection of the artefacts that is almost guaranteed to creep you out.
The curator of the museum, an artist known as Alex CF, claims he has inherited Merrylin’s collection.
Now, the priceless (literally, you can’t buy them) exhibits are in the hands of a 20-something artist, for reasons which are not immediately clear.
However there are some some disappointing news to all lovers of supernatural: the museum’s website states that the collection is not open to the public.
On the plus side, there are dozens of photos online for you to check out, if you’re into that kind of thing. Alex CF claims diaries left behind by Merrylin (he has these too, for some reason) refer to ‘all sorts of advanced ideas that didn’t exist at the time, such as quantum physics and the multiverse theory’.
While the story of Merrylin and his collection might be a little hard to believe, there’s no questioning the curator’s effort. With photos and details about goblins, elves, fairies, dragons and a whole lot more, our only hope is that one day he’ll interested individuals pop along for a visit.
