Forty years ago, a sleepy village in the heart of England was the scene of a gruesome discovery when nearly 300 skeletons were unearthed in a mass grave. Now, armed with the latest scientific methods, Bioarchaeologists investigate a ninth-century mass grave in a rural English village. The team uncovers extraordinary human stories from the front line, including evidence of women warriors and a lost king reunited with his son in death. Will the remains unlock the mystery of the “Great Heathen Army,” a legendary Viking fighting force that once invaded England?
