Subject: [DNA] Beheaded Vikings found at Olympic site
Date: Mon, 15 Mar 2010 01:28:47 -0500


A mass grave containing 51 beheaded bodies has been uncovered in Weymouth,
England. Radiocarbon dating placed the remains between A.D. 890 and 1030.

The story doesn't specify but I wonder if DNA testing has been or will be
conducted.
