Archeologists uncover skeletal remains of 6th century warrior

Archaeologists in the Břeclav region have uncovered an almost intact skeleton of a 6th century warrior and his two dogs. They came upon the remains while investigating one of the largest burial sites of the Germanic Langobards from the 6th century near the Nové Mlýny water reservoir. Pavla Růžičková from the Archaeological Institute of the Academy of Sciences, who announced the discovery, said that the exceptionally well-preserved skeletal remains will contribute to a closer understanding of the genetic composition of the Langobard population, its health or dietary habits.
