The Mysterious: Shugborough Monument

          This month’s archeological and historical mystery – the first of the year! – is a strange one. Reading about it has pushed me to the edge of a migraine, mostly because there are many, many people who believe they have solved it.

The Mysterious: Sylvia Plath Effect

         This month’s cultural mystery is the strange and disquieting Sylvia Plath Effect. Sylvia is perhaps my favorite author of all time, and I myself deal with mental health issues, so this topic is very close to my heart. Let’s explore. Major TW for suicide ahead.

The Mysterious: Mystery Hill in New Hampshire

          Mystery Hill is often referred to as “America’s Stonehenge.” Why? I have absolutely no idea. Stonehenge is made up of giant monoliths that defy any attempts to find meaning.
