1,600-year-old Hun burial in Poland contains 2 boys, including one with a deformed skull

A 1,600-year-old double burial discovered by archaeologists in Poland is some of the earliest evidence of Huns in Europe and the oldest Hunnic burial in Poland, a new study finds.

In 2018, study lead author Jakub Niebylski, an archaeologist at the Polish Academy of Sciences, excavated the grave in Czulice, a village near Krakow. The site contained the remains of two children, one of whom was laden with gold and silver trinkets and had an artificially deformed skull — a practice common among Hunnic elites. The grave also yielded an iron knife; a clay pot; and the remains of a dog, cat and crows.

 The European boy was probably a captive-hostage from the Romano-Celtic, Roman or Germanic upper class.

 The Huns went straight where the gold was and didn't bother the peasants or townspeople. Just traded with them.
