Arthur’s Seat Dolls

Arthur seat

In Edinburgh in 1836, a group of boys who were hunting rabbits came across a small alcove and found something very peculiar- 17 small caskets containing 17 small dolls. Immediately thought to be connected to witchcraft, these dolls have been a mystery for the ages- with new theories cropping up as recently as the 1990’s and suggestions of a possible connection to some very notorious serial killers.
