More precise dating of human bones previously discovered at a prehistoric site has suggested that the Neolithic Age was marked by more violence than traditionally imagined.

Waylands Smithy, a chambered long barrow 2km from the Uffington White Horse, Oxfordshire, consists of two monuments. In the 1960s the remains of 14 people, three of whom were probably killed by arrowshots, were discovered inside the smaller and earlier mound. Dating research carried out by English Heritage with the help of Cardiff University and University of Central Lancashire is now able to narrow the date of their burials to within a decade or so, between 3590 and 3560BC. This opens up the possibility that these people could have died together as a result of a massacre, possibly in a scramble for land or a cattle raid.
