Graves of two men with legs chopped off discovered

Still Waters

The graves of two men whose legs were chopped off at the knees and placed carefully by their shoulders before burial have been discovered by archaeologists working on a huge linear site in advance of roadworks in Cambridgeshire.

The best scenario the archaeologists can hope for is that the unfortunate men were dead when their legs were mutilated. It also appears their skulls were smashed in, although that could be later damage.

The two men, believed to be from the late Roman or early Saxon period, were placed in graves – at right angles to each other and with their heads turned away – in a gravel pit being used as a rubbish dump.
