LIFESTYLE History

Throughout history, practices around death and burial have been pretty weird. Victorian funeral portraits, where a dead person's body is posed for a photograph, are one fine example. At other periods, it was common practice to save a piece of a beloved or important person's body as a keepsake, or even a relic to worship. The opposite has also been true in cases where body parts were kept in order to symbolically torment the deceased.

Under many different bizarre and horrifying circumstances, some of the most famous historical figures were buried without significant body parts! In some cases, these appendages became more famous than their owners... Click through the following gallery to learn more about these strange and macabre journeys.
