Decapitated skull found near Svendborg
Anthropologists from ADBOU are involved in investigations of the finding of a skull in a forest near Svendborg.
The find consists of a skull, mandibula and two vertebrae of the neck. The mandibula shows clear cut marks caused by decapitation. On the temporal and cheekbones are evidence of healed lesions.
The skull is of a man that died in his 40s or 50s. It is uncertain exactly when the man died but it is likely many years ago. A 14C-analysis of a tooth will provide information about the time of death.
