Cannibalism by early Britons?

A bone fragment found in a cave in Devon hints at cannibalism amoung early Britons.

Researchers say the 9,000-year-old bone carries cut marks made by a stone tool which are consistent with the act of dismemberment.

Scientists believe the bone is evidence that Britons from the Mesolithic period engaged in complex burial rituals and possibly cannibalism.
