Weird, "hybridized" animal skeletons, including a cow-horse and a six-legged sheep litter the bottom of storage pits in an Iron Age site in England, archaeologists have found. One pit even holds the bones of a woman with a slit throat laid on top of animal bones, the scientists said.


This is pretty interesting, (in regards to the "6 legged sheep")

co-director Paul Cheetham, a senior lecturer in archaeology at Bournemouth University in the United Kingdom, Goes on to say,


The unusual remains belong to an ancient people who lived in southern England from about 400 B.C. until just before the Roman invasion, in A.D. 43


It's very intriguing as to the meaning behind the practices of the Durotriges tribe.


The site provides a perfect window into how the Roman invasion affected prehistoric Britain, Russell said. The scientists are planning to track the lifestyle and other changes that occurred after the Romans took over, he said. For instance, the hybridized animal pits date to the Iron Age, before the Romans arrived.

None the less, a good read.

If they dig up my trash one day, they will find that I had a chicken that had 36 wings.... and no other bones.

HAHAHA, they'd probably find some random oddities on my property.

a reply to: slapjacks 6-legged sheep is a birth defect, a genetic problem. But I do wonder what a horse-cow comes from! The original source beyond yahoo and the writer seem legit.

Thank you sir for that. I'm amused at your comment and impressed that you can eat 36 wings.

I agree.

I'd trust a Professional of Archaeology way before some wishy washy news anchor

The only way to get a horse-cow would be from advanced genetic manipulation. Kind of hard to believe iron age tribes of people would be able to pull that off though.

Further back in time during Babylon or pre-flood is rumored to have had sciences ahead of us now in some disciplines like genetics. No way to prove it though.

Maybe black magic could account for this Horse-Cow thingy.. Yikes..

Are we sure this is a horse cow hybrid? It could be an aurochs, which is an ancient extinct bovine

The picture of the "6-legged Sheep" states that the extra legs came from another sheep, so no weirdness there.

As for the cow-horse, the Aurochs suggestion seems a fair one for the time being, unless other information is released.

***ETA***
Upon further reading, this really seems to be a Bronze Age trash pit of sorts. The animal body parts are just all mixed up.

(A little post-mortem dead animal jigsaw puzzling?)
