Mass grave of ‘Viking Great Army’ buried in vicarage garden identified by archaeologists
New radiocarbon dating places remains at time of a ninth-century invasion of England by warriors from across Scandinavia

A mass grave found in a vicarage garden contains the remains of a ‘Viking Great Army’ that invaded England, according to new analysis.

The remains of nearly 300 people were first discovered in the 1970s, but their identities have remained a mystery until now.

Excavations unearthed the bodies underneath a shallow mound by St Wystan's Church vicarage in Repton, Derbyshire.

Taxpayers unable to pay dues

Taxpayers’ total overdue debts to the state soared to a record 101.8 billion euros at the end of December, in a clear indication that society’s taxpaying capacity is at breaking point due to overtaxation.

In December alone, when 2018 road tax and an installment of the Single Property Tax (ENFIA) came due, new expired debts amounted to 1.3 billion euros.

'Ultra-processed' products now half of all UK family food purchases
Exclusive: health experts warn increasing popularity of industrially-made food will lead to negative effects such as obesity and poor health

Half of all the food bought by families in the UK is now “ultra-processed”, made in a factory with industrial ingredients and additives invented by food technologists and bearing little resemblance to the fruit, vegetables, meat or fish used to cook a fresh meal at home.

Research by global nutrition experts reveals the scale of our food evolution, from farm-fresh to factory-manufactured. “Real food” has been replaced by salty snacks and sugary cereals, industrially-made bread and desserts, ready-meals and reconstituted meats alongside sweetened soft drinks.
