Teenage "witch" to receive Christian burial

Archaeologists in Kent, England have found the remains of a young girl buried in unconsecrated ground beneath a holly tree. They believe that the girl, whose head had been removed and buried beside the body, had been a criminal or accused of witchcraft.

Rev Andy Harding, the vicar of Hoo, has requested that the remains be released to the church for reburial in the churchyard.
