It seems that the wonders buried beneath our surface will never run out. Recently, the mysterious skeleton of a headless horse was discovered buried alongside its rider. The remains were found in a medieval graveyard in the southern town of Knittlingen in Germany. Several other artifacts were also found buried along with the remains. The expedition was led by archeologist Folke Damminger of the Stuttgart Regional Council’s State Office for Monument Preservation. The cemetery was first uncovered by accident in 1920, during ongoing construction work.
The Era of Discovery
The expedition was led by archeologist Folke Damminger of the Stuttgart Regional Council’s State Office for Monument Preservation. The cemetery was first uncovered by accident in 1920, during ongoing construction work. According to the archeologists from the office, the remains date back some 1,400 years. During that time, the Merovingian dynasty ruled the area. They were a Frankish family who reigned from 450 – 751 AD and were responsible for uniting much of what is now France and Central Europe.
A Headless Horse, a Body, and Some Mysterious Artifacts
The horse and the man were found buried in one of the 110 graves the archeologists examined. The other graves included scenes of simple burial, while others had wooden coffins and some more elaborate timbered burial chambers. Weapons including arrowheads, lanes, shields, and swords were found buried alongside many men. Luxury items, like a gold brooch, were also found in some graves. Other artifacts uncovered included amulets, arm rings, belt hangers, earrings, pearl necklaces, and robe clasps, along with bronze bowls, combs, knives, and ceramic vessels that, analysis has indicated, once contained food for the dead. Not only this, but the site also has a handful of Neolithic ceramic fragments, dating back to 5000-4500 BC. Dr. Dramminger has stated that these artifacts were found as Knittlingen’s location is in an old, fertile settlement landscape, which explained the Stone Age findings. The remains and the other artifacts will be transported to Rastatt for analysis, while the team will continue to look for more such interesting finds.
Secret Formula Unveiled to an Ultimate Night in
The best thing about a night in is that you won’t have hangovers. Who would not be interested it that? There was even a ‘formula’ floating around about having the ultimate Friday night in the UK. There weren’t any specifications but the Bits were excited about it. Some of the details included being cozy and comfortable while keeping nosey neighbors at bay about your plans. However, there was more. Let’s find out what an ultimate night in would look like.
The formula includes three of the best things you would enjoy, especially after a long day at work – video games, binge-watching television, and takeaway food in copious amounts. If you wish to make video games a priority for the night but are craving a pizza, then you always play the slots online for a while. These are short games so until your order arrives, you can play them. It does not need you to have high concentration levels like on a game of Counter-Strike or Call of Duty.
Cook or Order in
There are two things you can do and both are equally easy. It all depends on how much time you have. The first thing is to prepare some snacks the previous day so that you do not have to worry about the food on the ultimate night in. This works if you can spare the time to cook a day before. If you cannot spare the time then you can also consider ordering in. You could order in from Guy Fieri, who scouts some ridiculously delicious food.
Just before your order arrives, remember to keep your drinks in the refrigerators. So, by the time you get your order, tip your delivery guy, organize your food for the ultimate night in, your drinks would have chilled. Once you get your drinks too, load your video game or your favorite show to binge, and do not stop until it is the next day. It will surely get you to relax by the next day. You deserve this pampering.
