The extraordinary mass burial site on Ridgeway Hill excavated in June 2009 during the earthwork operation for the Weymouth relief road continues to reveal its secrets, isotope analysis of executed individuals from the mass burial has revealed that they are likely to have originated from a variety of places within the Scandinavian countries. This animation is a Multiple View Reconstruction; many photographs have been taken of the feature from as many different angles as possible and combined in software to produce a 3D model. The model was then animated to produce this fly-through view. The work was conducted by OA Digital using Open Source Software on behalf of Oxford Archaeology South; please visit http://oadigital.net for more information or to work with us.

Jules William Press is a small press devoted to publishing the best about the Viking Age, Old Norse, and the Atlantic and Northern European regions. Jules William Press was founded in 2013 to address the needs of modern students, teachers, and self-learners for accessible and affordable Old Norse texts. JWP began by publishing our Viking Language Series, which provides a modern course in Old Norse, with exercises and grammar that anyone can understand. This spirit motivates all of our publications, as we expand our catalogue to include Viking archaeology and history, as well as Scandinavian historical fiction and our Saga Series.
