Archaeologists from Norway’s Museum of Cultural History have uncovered 41 Bronze and Iron Age graves of children near Fredrikstad, southern Norway. Each grave is marked by a circle of flat stones, some containing cremated remains. The burials, found last year, date between 800 and 200 B.C. and mostly include infants and children aged 3 to 6 years. The circles, up to 6 feet across, were placed like cobblestones and buried just below the surface, with some surrounding a central stone and containing burned bones and pottery shards.
