Malling Hill Skeletons

Recent investigations on Malling Hill resulted from a piece of human bone found eroding out of a rabbit burrow on the east side of the hill. The most exciting discovery was a mass grave containing a group of men executed in the Saxon period, who may have been captured Viking raiders. BHAS helped fund the lab analysis so at this talk Greg will give the latest scientific news on where these men came from.

Monuments, Massacre and Medieval Expansion in Oxford

What was meant to be a fairly routine excavation at St John's College, Oxford, uncovered a mass grave which may be associated with St Brice's Day Massacre of AD 1002. Even more surprising was the fact that the individuals had been buried in a ditch of a previously unknown henge monument, dating from the late Neolithic period. The discovery of the prehistoric monument led to a reappraisal of this part of Oxford, which now seems likely to have been an important ritual round 5000years ago.
