Sacrificed Roman babies and animals found in London

The sacrificed remains of buried babies and animals have been uncovered at the site of a new high school in the greater London area.

Duncan Hawkins said: “It was extraordinary. Normally the number of ritual pits found in a settlement is two or three, but on this site we found more than 30.”

He said he believed the number of sacrifices was because it was close to a Bronze age circular enclosure – an early example of a stone circle like Stone Henge – that lay under the site of the former Queen Mary’s Hospital.

He said it was one of the most important finds in London in the past 30 years.
