Ancient execution: 80 shackled skeletons found in Greek cemetery
A discovery has been made in Greece that might chill you to the bone. At least 80 skeletons were unearthed at an ancient cemetery, their wrists bound by iron shackles, with the remains believed to be those of the victims of a mass execution.
Some of the skeletons in the Falyron Delta necropolis cemetery are lying in a neat row, while others are piled on top of each other, their jaws hanging open.
And although the bones were initially found earlier this year, few people have been allowed to have a look at the skeletons – until now.
