Museum of Unnatural Mystery

Mulder and Scully of the X-files would be more than at home in this virtual science museum which takes a look at the bizarre, unsolved mysteries of the universe.

Close encounters of the first, second and third kinds, theories on UFOs and alien abductions are explored in addition to speculation on whether life could exist elsewhere in our solar system.

Satisfy your curiosity about dinosaurs: did an asteroid wipe them out? Were they warm or cold-blooded? Could scientists really bring them back to life?

Excellent photos, illustrations and plenty of useful web links illustrate this entertaining and informative site.


A melt-in-the-mouth site from which you can trace the story of chocolate from the Maya and Aztec civilisations to today. You can also discover what gives Cadbury's Dairy Milk it's "very special taste".

A history lesson on chocolate will probably whet your appetite enough to visit the recipe pages and tempt you into baking a chocolate calculator cake or preparing the perfect chocolate sauce.

Cadbury produces a variety of resource packs for schools, such as The World of Work which aims to prepare pupils for work experience and advises on job applications. Information on these can be obtained from the site along with an order form.
