Headless Vikings the "most exciting & disturbing" archaeological discoveries in Britain in recent years



Fifty beheaded young men found in a burial pit at a 2012 Olympics building site were probably executed Vikings.

About 50 skeletons were found in an old quarry pit at Ridgeway Hill, in Dorset, in 2009, during the construction of the Weymouth relief road. All had been decapitated - their bodies were thrown into shallow graves with their heads piled up to one side.



The individuals are thought to have been executed at the graveside and stripped of their clothes, with defence wounds on their hands, arms and skulls and injuries to their necks and shoulders suggesting a bloodbath in which several blows were required to remove each head.
