Decapitated Vs. Stomach buried – A study of decapitated people and stomach placed people in Iron Age in Sweden and Denmark. This essay is about decapitated persons in graves and those buried on their stomach in the Iron Age in Sweden and Denmark. The analysis is to compare these graves by six perspectives; location of the grave, construction of the grave, grave goods, sex, age and interpretations of the grave. Out of this I found out if there are any different patterns of these graves, except that they are decapitated and places on their stomach. I compare between fifteen graves located on their stomach, nine decapitated graves, four graves that involve both and eight graves that do not contain any of it.
