A failed viking attack?
In 2009 archaeologists found a large pit full of skeletons in Dorset, England dated to 900-1000 AD. In the pit was 54 skeletons and 51 skulls piled up to one of the sides. (The 3 missing skulls perhaps taken as souvenirs?)
Forensic analysis showed that the skeletons were all Scandinavian men in fighting age between 18-25 years old and just a few which were older.
The skeletons shows that they got hacked to death in a gruesome manner by blows to the face, chest etc. by weapons such as swords. The skeletons also shows cuts to the limbs and hands which means that they were trying to defend themselves by putting their arms up to deflect the blows.
The execution is thought to have been hasty and rather chaotic, perhaps in front of an audience.
The reason behind the execution is not known but one theory is that the vikings had left their ship, walked inland, ran into an unusually well-organized body of Saxons, and were most likely forced to surrender.
Another theory is that they were traitors or defectors that got executed by their own.

#exploreeverything from big cities to #smalltown. This #little #town in #france is called #colmar. The beautiful #medieveal #buildings still stand a testimony for their inherent design and candour. The clear #waterfront is also known as #littlevenice taking after the Italian Venice water canals.

How many of you knew that Marseille was the cultural capital of medieval Europe before the #great #plagueofmarseille hit Europe. The plague decimated half its population. But Marseille regained its glory and became center of the #french #revolution and is the birth place French national anthem #lamarseillaise . Once the city was a common gate for trade to prosper still remains a popular destination for #tourism and migration.

When the hero must take heart, go where they dare not, and confront a deadly beast are my favorite moments in fantasy :) #artstudent #artist #art #comics #cartoon #drawing #sketch #sketches #everyday #scad #scad2020 #savannah #makecomics #unlikelyhero #braveunknown #fantasy #medieveal thehobbit #smaug #howtotrainyourdragon #cressidacowell #hiccup #thegreendeath #personal #favortie #scenes #parts #stickynotes #puttogether
