(ORDO NEWS) — Scientists at the University of Cambridge have done a tremendous amount of research on the inverted tombs. Hundreds of tombs from the Bronze Age (2400-1500 BC) have been found in Great Britain. The position itself was unusual in them – the tombs were overturned.
Burial in the form of small mounds with a burial urn inside. There were a lot of such objects at the excavation site. The remains of people are well preserved in them. They were located vertically, upside down.
Researchers have been trying for a very long time to find out why such a strange position of bodies in urns. In the end, they agreed that the ancient beliefs of people were the cause of the “overturning” of the remains.
At that time, it was believed that a person after death goes to the afterlife. Being under the mound implies life in the Kingdom of the Dead. After the funeral, they walk on the ground in the same way as living people, but on the other side. If you bury them in their normal position, they will simply fall to the ground from that side.
The two kingdoms converge in one line and mirror each other. The earth’s surface is the border between the worlds. Therefore, the dead were buried upside down. From the point of view of people of the Bronze Age, it is so convenient for the dead to lean on the ground and walk.
