Skip to comments.Early Neolithic Mass Grave Reveals New Evidence of a Violent Age in Central Europe

It's an age often described as one of social unrest, leading to an "apocalyptic nightmare of violence, warfare, and cannibalism." A Neolithic mass grave in Germany shows the idea may not be far wrong... Christian Meyer and his fellow researchers now believe they have enough evidence to explain "conclusively" what happened at the site of a mass grave in Schöneck-Kilianstädten, near Frankfurt, around 5207-4849 BC. If they are right, their findings may help our understanding of early social unrest among the first Central European farmers of the Neolithic era... The site at Schöneck-Kilianstädten reveals a "new violence-related pattern: the intentional and systematic breaking of lower limbs." At least 26 people at the site were tortured and systematically beaten before being thrown into a pit. Most of the victims were men and children aged between 12 and 13 years. The researchers found evidence of only two women, estimated to have been older than 40. It suggests any younger women -- for example, mothers of the children -- were abducted... Their theory chimes with evidence found at two other Neolithic massacre sites: one at Talheim, Germany and the other at Asparn/Schletz, Austria... Among the men and children in the mass grave, Meyer and the team found many damaged skulls, fractured calves and shins... Meyer says the three sites together prove that as early as 7000 years ago, acts of "collective violence" were common. This period also saw humans begin to settle, to build and to live off the land and witnessed the widespread flourishing of a form of pottery known as Linear Pottery culture.

It shows that the kind of violence which still goes on daily in Islamic countries dwindled out thousands of years ago in Europe. Less flippantly, it sounds like a clash between descendants of the Black Sea Flood refugees and someone else. There are photos, but I think we can live without them in the topic, those interested can view the original.
Considering the levels of Euthanasia and aborting of near all unborn children with Down Sydrome in Nordic countries...the legacy might not just be Central Europe. Did Vikings practice infanticide?
Present-day Nordic countries*
And re: Central Europe. the 20th Century alone was pretty bad and bloody.
Violence warfare and cannibalism. We’re almost there.
Headlines like this lukewarm crap make me sick
2 churches in France vandalized daily thousands over the past couple of years and they dont talk about it
They talk about this non revealing crap
56 million innocent people in this country alone.
What these studies fail to mention of course is how the Christianization of the world...however much later...changed things. Dramatically. It was the primary civilizing force of Europe.
If this headline makes you sick, try an aspirin. Otherwise go to one of the other couple of million FR topics.
Uh, no. Civilization is the result of building cities.
None of this has anything to do with euthanasia or abortion. Quit trolling.
Violence, warfare, and cannibalism are not new, but our awareness of them is much greater and wider ranging, due to modern media.
Thousands of years?
Besides the 3 billion wars since then :)
That tiny one being all of 75 years ago, where MASS rape and slaughter were rife :)
Let’s pat ourselves on the back for having come so far :)
A history article gets you upset?
Black Sea Flood keyword (selections) chrono sorted:
I'd be surprised if more such death assemblages are not found.
I think history, articles or otherwise just shows how the human race has the ability to inflict damage on other members of the human race. Anyone that thinks we are above that capability is an idiot or doesnt read the papers or watch the news. To believe we as a species have ascended to a level above those before us is horseshitz. IMO
The article doesnt make me sick
What makes me sick its intent and its timing

In other words, they had their problems with democrats too.
