If you travel throughout Europe, you will see some of the most beautiful structures mankind has ever built. And if you look hard enough, you might find that some buildings contain material other than stone. Material that was abundant hundreds of years ago and strong enough to support large structures.
That's right, these buildings were decorated and built almost entirely with human skulls and bones. They managed to turn death into architectural masterpieces.
