In 5000 BC Europe, it is believed that up to 1,000 men, women, children and even unborn foetuses were victims of cannibalism. Some scientists believe the victims were murdered, butchered like livestock, then cooked and cannibalised in sacrificial rites that drew participants from hundreds of miles away. Seven thousand years on, the extraordinary violence of this scene is calling into question the very basis of human civilisation. In 2009 in the small hamlet of Herxheim in southern Germany, an international team of archaeologists excavating a 7000-year-old mass grave of up to 1000 Stone Age people came to the startling conclusion that the site was not a Neolithic graveyard, as previously assumed, but a killing field where hundreds met a grisly fate. Herxheim is a window into one of the most violent periods of human history.
