"Viking Mystery" by David Keys

The October 2010 issue of Smithsonian magazine has an interesting article about two mass graves that have been found in England.

These men may well have been Danish/Viking mercenaries who were ordered to be killed by the Anglo-Saxon king Aethelred the Unready in the 10th Century when he suspected they were going to revolt against him.
