I think I was actually there once, or a place very similar to it. It was in Czech so I'm not sure if it is the sake ossuary.

That is called an ossuary or a charnel house. In Europe, they were built on/around/in churches because though the wealthy and the fortunate kept dying through the ages, the number of churches with "hollowed ground" or earth gathered from Holy sites in Israel stayed small. As time passed, churches ran out of places to bury the bones, and let them build up. Eventually, they hired an interior decorator or something to figure out what to do with the bones.   
Ossuary/charnel houses that I know of off the top of my head are Sedlec Ossuary (Sedlec, Czech Republic) and Capela dos Ossos (√Čvora, Portugal).

I hate that show, it basically states we're useless as a species and incapable of creating great works.

Just because you blocked your profile doesn't mean I can't see your comments.

User avatar #70 to #59 - beerterror (05/08/2013) [-]
People who built it were probably immigrants, most likely jews from Alexandria and other hellenic territories.

So, yeah, ******* still have no point.

User avatar #78 to #76 - beerterror (05/08/2013) [-]
Well I done goofed now, took them for being more ancient then they really are. Since they come from XII century at best, they had to be built be Ethiopians themselves. Sorry blackfellas (still majority of africa is a ******* eternal beginnerville).

I'm sure you're just making a joke, but Ethiopia has been a Christian kingdom almost since the beginning of Christianity.
User avatar #47 to #46 - mackosik (05/08/2013) [-]
I'm sure they did not use black people to help out with that stone church.
User avatar #48 to #47 - satrenkotheone (05/08/2013) [-]
Well.... both the rulers and the labourers were black people.
User avatar #49 to #47 - satrenkotheone (05/08/2013) [-]
Also when you think about it that way, I'm sure they didn't use white people to build the Notre Dame or Kremlin.
