Skeletal evidence of an Iron Age murder victim

Archaeologists in England have discovered evidence of a large ceremonial structure and a potentially brutal human sacrifice. While excavating a 4000-year-old Iron Age site at Wellwick Farm near Wendover, England, as part of the High Speed 2 (HS2) project (the biggest rail project in Europe’s history), archaeologists have discovered the skeleton of a man, who was buried face down, with his hands bound together beneath his pelvis, thought to be the remains of an Iron Age murder victim.
