A construction of houses for retirees in the UK has transformed into an archaeological site when, in turn, excavating 42 ancient tombs that may have existed in the 5-11 century.
The most peculiar feature of the ancient tombs is that the inside remains are buried with the posture of hands tied behind their backs and seem to be quite sketchy . The site of this creepy discovery was the town of Buckingham, a landmark in southern England.

The archaeologists took over the scene, temporarily having three main theories surrounding the origin of this horror graveyard.The leading hypothesis is that this is the tomb of the Anglo-Saxons , ancient indigenous people in England, dating from the 5th to 11th century AD.
The second theory is that they were buried in the bloody British Civil War of 1642-1651.
The third hypothesis was put forward by Robin Stuchbury, Buckinghamshire County Commissioner and Buckingham town, that these ancient tombs were of the criminals executed on hangman in the old town .
Bill Chapple, from the Planning & Environment department of Buckinghamshire County Council, said the remains had been removed from the parcel. They are still waiting to be analyzed by scientists to determine the age, age, sex, origin, health, illness and cause of death of these strange remains.
This is not the first time ancient tombs containing dead people in a creepy posture have been discovered. Last year, in another site in the south of England, Oxfordshire, another construction site also accidentally revealed 26 ancient tombs, including dead corpses in the posture of being executed with feet. Cut and hands tied behind the head. These graves date from the Iron Age and Roman invasion of England.
