Remains may be ancient child sacrifice

The remains of a second child who could have been a human sacrifice have been unearthed in an ancient burial ground in the Yorkshire Dales.
The bones of the child, believed to be aged about four, were discovered last week by Leeds University archaeologists near Kettlewell, in Upper Wharfedale. It is the second skeleton found at the site, following the discovery late last year of a child's remains in a stone-lined hollow – one of eight sets in the ring cairn at Kettlewell.
And following the latest find, experts believe the site could date back as far as 4,000 years – 1,000 years later than previously thought.
