"This was no skirmish between local clans"

Archaeologists working in northeastern Germany discovered evidence of a brutal Bronze Age battle on the banks of the Tollense River. The remains of at least five horses and 100 men, together with numerous weapons, were identified with numerous other remains still left unexcavated. The find helps document intensive activity in a region that previously was thought to have been a relative cultural backwater during this period.
