Ship Made From Human Bones

Given that the French and English warred with each other for centuries it’s a little surprising to hear that French prisoners during the Napoleonic wars were treated fairly well. Many of these prisoners were held in British brigs for over a decade. That said, they needed something to do. Today I learned that French war prisoners made these elaborate baroque models of British ships of the line out of human bones. Remember there were plenty of human bones given the wars. Also French prisoners apparently used pigs to scour for human bones in shallow graves. They allowed the bones to dry and bleach in the sun before assembling.
