The riddle of the skulls

Archaeologists in Dorset, England are trying to uncover the mystery of a burial pit full of skulls dating to Roman times. The 45 skulls discovered so far all appear to belong to young men.

David Score, project manager for Oxford Archaeology, says that the remains will be sent to oxford for analysis, but theories so far seem to indicate either an epidemic or an encounter between locals and Roman soldiers. Other bones have also been discovered in adjacent pits.
