(iWIDK By Alex Dorian) – I guess wooden stakes will do the trick.
In 1959, archaeologist Charles Daniels unearthed a skeleton in Nottinghamshire, Britain that displayed metal spikes pinning the deceased through the shoulders, ankles, and heart.
Matthew Beresford, of Southwell Archaeology informed DNA India that such a punishment was reserved “for thieves, murderers or traitors or later for those deviants who did not conform to society’s rules: adulterers, disruptors of the peace, the unpious or oath breaker.”
Beresford informed reporters that Daniels was unable to remove the body from the grave, and that it is unclear as to where exactly the body was exhumed.
Historians and archaeologists believe they may never know for sure why the person was buried in such a manner.
