Scientists excavating a 5,000-year old village in northern China have found remains of 97 human bodies stuffed inside the charred wreckage of a house.

According to the Mirror, the bodies included those of teenagers, young adults as well as middle ages men.

Scientists said that the building was smaller than a modern-day squash court.

According to archaeologists who studied the remains of the bodies, they had been wiped out by a “prehistoric disaster,” such as an epidemic, and had been stacked inside the house instead of being buried.

Since the bodies were messily scattered, it suggested that they were dying faster than the survivors could deal with their corpses.
