Burials in which the skeletons lie faceway down

Rarely, but still, archaeologists find ancient burials of people in
которых скелеты отчего-то расположены лицом way down, что не характерно
for human burials in principle. For some reason
people put in graves in such a strange way? It was a long time
a mystery.

Swedish archaeological team led by Karolina
Arsini more carefully examined several hundred of these.
burials and came to the unequivocal conclusion: so people were buried
who for some reason have lost respect in society, in some way
guilty, for example, have committed some kind of crime. And society
in this way he showed his disrespect for the dead. So
Thus, we can assume that this form of burial is
traditional and not some kind of anomaly.

At one time there was even the opinion that the dead themselves
turned over in a coffin, because at that far time they could
to bury living people who have fallen into a lethargic sleep, thereby introducing
mislead their kinsmen. However, Swedish scientists have discovered
some signs that support their theory that
именно преступников клали лицом way down:

  • во-первых, многие покойники лицом way down были со связанными
    most likely they were buried alive with their hands and feet (this
    there were always men);
  • secondly, such burials are found in almost all
    ancient burial grounds from Korea to Peru, and these burials are located
    without fail on borders (tradition to bury criminals outside
    the churchyard remained up to the present day);
  • thirdly, the most revered departed in ancient tombs
    often resting in a sitting position, which indicated their high
    social standing while dead persons laid
    way down, могли демонстрировать только презрение к ним со стороны
    people.

However, this fact remains unclear: why in such
странных могильниках лицом way down оказываются похороненными не только
men (obviously, criminals), but also women and even children? ..
