Barbaric is close to Barbecue in the dictionary... I expect there was a lot of Cannibalism in europe 7000 years ago.
Archaeologists have found evidence of mass cannibalism at a 7,000-year-old human burial site in south-west Germany, the journal Antiquity reports.
The authors say their findings provide rare evidence of cannibalism in Europe's early Neolithic period.
Up to 500 human remains unearthed near the village of Herxheim may have been cannibalised.
The "intentionally mutilated" remains included children and even unborn babies, the researchers say.
The German site was first excavated in 1996 and then explored again between 2005 and 2008.
There are still people in Russia that practise this gruelsom art, its not completly disapeared people still eat people.
