Sandby Borg Massacre

26. Sandby Borg Massacre

1500 years ago, unknown raiders attacked a small, wealthy village located in Sandby Borg, Sweden. They killed anyone and everyone in their path, and the skeletons of the victims were found lying exactly where they fell – on the streets and in the houses. This gruesome massacre is known as the Sandby Borg massacre.

Excavations have revealed that the army looted vast amounts of gold, silver, pottery ad other precious objects from the village. At least 26 people, including children, were killed in this encounter. But we still don’t know the identity of the attackers until this very day.
