    A gruesome discovery in eastern France casts new light on violent conflicts that took lives - and sometimes just limbs - around 6,000 years ago. Excavations of a 2-meter-deep circular pit in Bergheim revealed seven human skeletons and part of an infant’s skull strewn atop the remains of seven human arms, say anthropologist Fanny Chenal of Antea Archéologie in Habsheim, France, and her colleagues.

    In an answer to archaeologists' prayers, excavations at the site of the first English church in what is now the United States have cast light on the lives and deaths of four key players at Virginia's Jamestown colony more than 400 years ago.

Excavations and investigations of the dead began in November 2013.
