Crazy Horse Memorial

Started in the 1940s as a one-man project, this museum memorial is still a work in progress, carving a mountain into a representation of Crazy Horse on his steed. (Crazy Horse never allowed his picture to be taken, so it is not his likeness.) The 'Carving a Mountain' section is informative on this uncommon medium.

The Proceedings of the Old Bailey London

Over one hundred fifty years of court case transcripts from the Old Bailey in London, starting from 1674. How would you react if you heard someone breaking into your house? Now if you couldn't call the police? Thomas White got his man and neighbors to help search his cellars when it happened to him on 22 October 1780. This and many other stories of the impact of crime on everyday lives are found here.
