BEIJING: In a gruesome find, archaeologists have unearthed remains of 97 human bodies stuffed into a 5,000 year-old small house, possibly killed in an epidemic of some sort, in northeast China.
The bodies of juveniles, young and middle-age adults were packed together in the house – smaller than a modern-day squash court – before it burnt down.
A “prehistoric disaster,” possibly an epidemic of some sort, killed these people, researchers said.
The site dates back to a time before writing was used in the area, when people lived in relatively small settlements, growing crops and hunting for food, ‘Live Science’ reported.
“Hamin Mangha site is the largest and best-preserved prehistoric settlement site found to date in northeast China,” researchers wrote in the journal Chinese Archaeology.
CHINESE PEOPLE ARE CHEATS DON’T BELIEVE THEM. IT IS NOT 5000 YRS OLD. IT MIGHT BE THE ATROCITIES COMMITTED ** LATELY…. ITS FOR GRANTED
Hard to dig out…If it was a mass suicide or mass murder…but it’s a scary experience .
Bones between age 19 years and 35 years are denser than younger and older men (and women) May be that is why no remains of older adults and younger children were found.
Wherever you put “Scientist” “Scientific” or “Science” People believe blindly
The body cannot be preserved so long until mummified

97 dead bodies in one room dating back to 5000 years require greater scientific investigation to find the truth
Poor chaps. Let us mourn for then
