Welcome to the Anemptyglass WikiaEdit

The Taman Shud Case, also known as the Mystery of the Somerton Man, is one of Australia's most profound mysteries of all time. On the 1st of December 1948,the body of a man was found on the foreshore of Somerton beach, Glenelg, just south of Adelaide, South Australia. The identity of the man and the circumstances surrounding his death remain as unknown today as they were then.

There are plenty of websites dedicated to this most perplexing mystery, so what's one more? I have included links to some of the other websites covering the case, on the Useful Links page. I apologise for the slightly scrappy nature of some of the pages, it is a work in progress.
