Stolen 17th Century Bust Returned (About.com European History)
An interesting history-related post from About.com European History:
In 1941, a bust of Dr Peter Turner was stolen from a church in London during an air raid. Turner was a noted doctor, and the sculpture dates from 1614. However, years later, the bust has been recovered and returned, after a curator at the Museum of London noticed it for sale in an auction. It's an interesting bust, full of life and colour, and the BBC has a picture, plus more information.
