Neolithic Age 'massacre' remains

1 post in this topic

Mar. 13

Advanced scientific dating of human bones discovered at a prehistoric burial site indicates they belong to people who may have died in a massacre in the Neolithic Age.

Remains of the 14 people - three of whom were probably killed by arrows - were discovered at Wayland's Smithy, a burial mound near the Uffington White Horse in Oxfordshire, in the 60s.

Their bones were buried in the oldest part of the mound, known as a chambered long barrow, and researchers have now narrowed the date of their burials to between 3590 and 3560 BC.
