Dolphin Grave Found on Channel Islands
Archeologists working on a low tide site discover the grave of a dolphin. It was ritually buried as if human.
If you read the site you might know that we are real history (and archeology) buffs. When we read this story about an archeological team discovering a ritual burial site containing the remains of a dolphin we figure you would find it as interesting a we did.
Archaeologists digging at an island religious retreat have unearthed the remains of a porpoise that, mystifyingly, appears to have been carefully buried in its own medieval grave.
The area where the graves were found only appears at low tide. It was obviously occupied when sea levels were lower. That is common throughout the world.
The team believe the marine animal found on the island of Chapelle Dom Hue, off the west coast of Guernsey, was buried in the 14th century.
