Last year workmen for the 2012 Olympics sailing venue in southern England came upon a grisly discovery
: fifty-one men had been severely injured, most of them beheaded, and tossed into a mass grave
.The burial site
was discovered during the construction of the Weymouth Relief Road
. Analysis of teeth has revealed that the beheaded men were Scandinavian. Most of the skulls show evidence of multiple blows to the vertebrae, jawbones and skulls with a large, very sharp weapon such as a sword. All the remains appear to be male and most are aged from their late teens to about 25 years old, with just a small number of older individuals. As a general group they are tall, robust in stature with good teeth.
