From Current Archaeology:
Archaeologists have excavated over 600 bodies from around the world, mysteriously buried face-down. Britain is the biggest hotspot – with more than 200 prone burials. What do they signify? Caroline Arcini of Sweden’s National Heritage Board has been investigating.
Note: I suspect that Morbid Curiosity may have posted this before, but I couldn’t confirm it because Tumblr’s search feature FUCKING SUCKS. Sorry, it had to be said. Seriously: I can’t even search my OWN posts by text, or even by tag.
