Skeleton of Iron Age murder victim unearthed?

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A skeleton believed to be a murder victim from the Iron Age has been discovered by archaeologists working on the HS2 project in Buckinghamshire.

HS2 said that the grisly find was unearthed during the excavation work at Wellwick Farm near Wendover when the archaeologists found the skeleton of an adult male buried face down in a ditch with hands bound together under his pelvis.

The unusual burial position suggests the iron age man may have been a victim of a murder or execution, it added.

Osteologists are currently examining the skeleton for further evidence of foul play, HS2 said.
