The Shroud of Turin: Some interesting things you should know

According to legend, the shroud was secretly carried from Judea in AD 30 or 33, and was housed in Edessa, Turkey, and Constantinople (the name for Istanbul before the Ottomans took over) for centuries. After crusaders sacked Constantinople in AD 1204, the cloth was smuggled to safety in Athens, Greece, where it stayed until AD 1225.

What happened to the island of Bermeja?

This little piece of land in the Gulf of Mexico has now vanished without a trace. Theories of what happened to the island range from it being subject to ocean floor shifts or rising water levels to it being destroyed by the US to gain oil rights. It also may have never existed.
