Richard Klein, an anthropological science professor at Stanford University, called the findings interesting but lacking substance.
“The sample is too small to draw that conclusion,” Klein said. “I’m not against the idea, but there is no link between the burials and anything with human behavior. They’re far apart and come from different cultures.”
Who is Richard Klein kidding? Of course there was human sacrifice in prehistoric Europe! There was human sacrifice everywhere. There was human sacrifice in Renaissance Europe.
Sorry, Europe. Being the cradle of Western civilization does not give you a pass.
