Engineers Just Uncovered 26 ‘Ritually Buried’ Skeletons While Digging a Pipeline in England
By Brandon Specktor, Senior writer Live Science
Engineers were digging pits to lay a new water pipeline recently in the English countryside — but the pits were already occupied by the dead.
According to a statement released yesterday (April 15) from the British utility company Thames Water, a pipe-laying project in Oxfordshire has led to the discovery of 26 human skeletons, some of which are believed to be nearly 3,000 years old. [In Photos: Boneyard of Iron Age Warriors]
The oldest skeletons are thought to date to the Iron Age (which lasted from the eighth century B.C. to the second century A.D.), experts from the local Cotswold Archaeology heritage society said in the news release, providing fresh insights into how local communities lived before the Roman conquest of Britain began in the first century.
