Several 8,000 year-old skulls mounted on stakes have been discovered in central Sweden.
The find at the Kanaljorden excavation site is being praised as unique, with nothing like it having ever been found before. "We found two skulls that still had wooden stakes sticking out of them through a whole at the base of the skull," said archeologist Fredrik Hallgren. In total the skulls of 11 individuals have been found at the site.
"Several human skulls found mounted on wooden stakes have been uncovered from a Stone Age lake bed in central Sweden in what is believed to be the first discovery of its kind anywhere in the world."
