For three decades, someone has been laying cryptic tile messages about resurrecting the dead in the cities roads throughout the U.S. and around the world. These tiles have been named Toynbee Tiles after the British historian, Arnold Toynbee, who often discussed the rise and fall of civilizations. The people or person responsible for these tiles has remained a secret with many theories as to who is responsible. A movie titled Resurrect Dead: The Mystery of the Toynbee Tiles was released last year piecing together key events in an attempt to unravel the mystery and surreal story behind the tiles.
