## Abstract

top
We study the famous examples of G. S. Young [7] and R. H. Bing [2]. We generalize and simplify a little their constructions. First we introduce Young spirals which play a basic role in all considerations. We give a construction of a Young spiral which does not have the fixed point property (see Section 5) . Then, using Young spirals, we define two classes of uniquely arcwise connected curves, called Young spaces and Bing spaces. These classes are analogous to the examples mentioned above. The definitions identify the basic distinction between these classes. The main results are Theorems 4.1 and 6.1.
