Violence among early Scotland farmers
Out of 85 burials in this tomb, 16 have clear evidence of head trauma caused by weapons. Some of these injuries were healed but others not, meaning that they were killed by them (or related violence).
The tomb's age is of c. 3000 BCE, a few centuries after farming began in the area.
