  • Witches' marks at Creswell Crags in Nottinghamshire

    A gateway to hell, a place of worship or protective symbols? What are the so-called Witches’ Marks at Creswell Crags that have captured the imagination of millions?

    Creswell Crags never ceases to amaze us. Located on the border of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, this limestone gorge has a wealth of history dating back 60 thousand years.

    It wasn’t too long ago that we were telling you about the only-verified-in-the-UK Ice Age cave paintings, dating back to the prehistoric period. A time when migrating hunter-gatherers and animals moved according to the seasons in search of food and warmer weather. The good old days.

    Celebrating Chinese New Year in style with COSMO

    There’s no denying that all-you-can-eat buffets have a certain special place in our collective cultural psyche. Huge appetite? Buffet. Can’t choose? Buffet. Picky eater? Buffet. And then, of course, there’s the age-old question of how to approach it. Should you stick to one cuisine at a time or is it acceptable to dump a crazy cultural mash-up on your plate?
