Archaeologists discover mass grave in Neilby

Archaeologists from the University of Manchester have found what they believe to be a mass grave once used for human sacrifice in Pasture Fields, Neilby.  The bodies of eight men, four women and three dogs were exhumed from the field, along with crude iron weapons thought to be the implements used to dispatch the victims.

Professor John Soaks is team leader at the excavation site.  ‘This is the strongest evidence yet of human sacrifice being practiced in the north of England.  The skeletons we found had lacerations to the neck area, indicating ritualistic beheading.  We are very excited by this find.’  He went on to say that, according to preliminary dating, the site could be over thirty-six years old.
