Viking Grave

Via Maggie's, a Smithsonian article on a mass grave of three dozen vikings, found under Oxford University when digging started for a new dormitory.

Grave sites are the worst nightmare of engineers/contractors. But good story, liked the medieval dump on top of the viking mass grave on top of the neolithic sun henge. Always better than digging up a surprise oil tank or high voltage wire.
