Scientists have sent discovery to the laboratory in Poznan. It turned out, the label was dealt a resin, and updated after the witch was buried.
“When drawing and photographing burial, our attention was drawn to patterns such as parallel lines, visible on both the elbow. First, we cautiously approached the opening – perhaps we thought the footprints from the animals,” said archaeologist Danuta jurkiewicz from the Institute of archaeology of the University of Adam Mickiewicz in poznań.
Archaeologists have found that the grave was dug up several times and updated pictures on hands buried.
