Mystery cave find wows Spanish scientists

Mystery cave find wows Spanish scientists

Archaeologists made an exciting discovery near Barcelona recently: the 6,400-year-old remains of four people. Strangest of all, the group may have been bound together with rope and wrapped in a shroud at death.

The archaeologists from the University of Barcelona found the remains of a 50-year-old man, an adolescent and two children in a cave near the city of Barcelona.

The bodies were in unusually good condition because a rockfall had blocked off the entrance to the cave, researchers said.

But it was the circumstances of the find that were most intriguing.

Tied together? Did they think they might wander off after death? Or it is possible they were not dead when binded in the first place. Not neccasarily murder, but maybe they were all ill and those who tied them together to die with each other knew they were all going to die anyway...hence the funeral shroud, albeit maybe prematurely, the foetal position could have been the dying people trying to keep warm while waiting for the end.

Just a thought.
