A team from Denmark's Aarhus University is excavating a Danish bog at Alken Enge
that is turning out to be a practically never-ending source of ancient human remains. The most recent discovery
at this bog is a boon to archaeologists and necromancers alike -- the skeletal remains of a 200 strong army whose lives ended at the bog
. But wait, it gets magnitudes of order more grim, because those lives appear to have ended not in battle, but as human sacrifices
.With so many remains on hand, the Alken Enge promises to provide researchers with valuable insights on how human sacrifice -- not an uncommon practice in Iron Age Europe -- was carried out in the region. It also promises to be the starting point for an undead army that will almost certainly rise up and wipe Copenhagen from the map
, but hey, you can't do science without disturbing the eternal rest of a few hundred angry warrior spirits.
