Abstract: 

Antoine has constructed a wild Cantor set in R3 (Antoine's necklace). The construction was later extended to R^n, n \geq 4, by Blankinship and used in Wright's construction of rigid Cantor sets in R^n, extending a Shilepsky result. I will present some of these results and try to relate them to recent results of Garity, Repovs and Zeljko.
