Discovery in Kenya sheds light on the origins of warfare (via ERC)

Dr Mirazón Lahr’s team unearthed the remains of 27 individuals brutally murdered around 10,000 years ago from the sediment of a dried-up lagoon. They show clear signs of a traumatic death, such as skulls violently hit and skeletons stabbed with stone arrows or spear tips. The bodies had not been buried, but instead they had fallen into a marshy lagoon at the edge of Lake Turkana which – was much larger at that time helping preserve the remains in a relatively good state.
