 Human Burial from Pohansko, 9th century, AD.  Note the crossed long bones on the chest may be a common regional reaction to misfortune sometimes attributed to vampirism.  (Photo courtesy of Dr. Jiri Machacek)    The importance of horses even in cultures not traditionally considered nomadic or Steppe-derived is reflected in the burial of these animals.  Here, and on Anglo-Saxon sites, the warrior elite seem to have marked their prominence through such burials.  (Photo courtesy of Dr. Jiri Machacek).
