Cannibals of the Stone Age

In 5000 BC Europe, it is believed that up to 1,000 men, women, children and even unborn foetuses were victims of cannibalism.

Some scientists believe they were murdered, butchered like livestock, then cooked and cannibalised in sacrificial rites that drew participants from hundreds of miles away. 7000 years later, the extraordinary violence of this scene is sending shock waves across the centuries and calling into question everything we thought we knew about our civilisation and ourselves.
