Surprising discovery of two Viking family members

University of Copenhagen geneticist Eske Willersle said, he was found in grave of 35 graves all of them killed in a brutal way and that’s why it might be that, he was killed with the other 35 people around Oxford, during the St. Brice Day massacre, the 13th of November 1002 because that’s where the English king ordered all the Vikings killed.

The older Viking died around 50 years old in Denmark, and Sustained injures that indicate he too saw battle but researchers say the older Viking likely died from disease, such as tuberculosis.
