Have you ever been lost as a small group in a lonesome forest? In the ancient days, the situation might have made you a target for human sacrifices. This very much was part of the life of ancient tribes in Europe. Archeologists believe that Common Stone Age graves in Europe which include the remains of physically disabled people hint at ritual human sacrifice there. These burial sites are between the period 26,000 and 8000 B.C. Skeletons such as those of a teenage dwarf and a girl with malformed bones were found buried alongside able-bodied dead. Previous such hints have been obtained from ceremonial burial sites in Russia, the Czech Republic, and Italy. An interesting discovery was of double burial of the children, unearthed at Vladimir, Russia, some 120 miles (193 kilometers) east of Moscow. Perforated arctic fox teeth, ivory pins, and carvings, as well as disk-shaped pendants and giant spears made of mammoth tusks were also found. Since each bead would have taken more than an hour to make, the children’s burial may have been planned before they died some 24,000 years ago. Is it that these young kids were offered as human sacrifice by those tribes back then? Evidences also indicate that often the disabled, drawfs and children were chosen for sacrifices. Thankfully we are not part of those morbid times.
