This is just too cool. Those who know me know that I'm obsessed with all things Viking related, and apparently a large mass grave of executed Vikings was found in Britain back in June. Geological and radiation analysis just identified the remains.

The most interesting thing is that these Vikings were in Anglo-Saxon England, rather than the Danelaw. It shows even more so that we often forget how easily people moved back and forth in the ancient world.
