"Mysterious" skeleton found in Irish crannog

Archaeologists are pondering the cause of death of a 15th century teenager buried in an "irregular" manner on a crannog, a man made island settlement, in County Fermanagh, Ireland. The remains of the young woman seem to indicate a hasty burial, leading experts to consider foul play.

In addition to the grave, the archaeological site has yielded thousands of artifacts dating from the 7th to the 16th centuries, including 30 wooden houses. The excavations are being made at the site of a future road construction.
