Archaeologists have discovered in Alsace in Eastern France, the remains of 10 people who died as a result of brutal mass murder. The find was made not far from Strasbourg. The bones were in one of the 300 silage pits, used to store livestock feed.

The researchers found five skeletons of adults, one teen, and four other hands of different people. Scientists suggest that the hands were sort of the spoils of war.
