About the Site Hallgren and his team uncovered skulls and skull fragments of up to 11 individuals of all ages and genders. Most skulls were pierced with a wooden stake that protruded from the base of the skull. One theory is that it is a secondary burial site and another one is that the skulls belong to enemy natives and were brought back as a trophy from war.
