The Case:

During archaeological excavations in a bronze age burial site in Mikulovice, a 4000-year-old skeleton was discovered that had been buried with big stones put on his head and chest. According to Radko Sedlacek of the East Bohemia Museum, people had been "afraid that he might leave his grave and return to the world".

The Date:

The grave is reported to be some 4000 years old. So let us say we file it as around 2000 B.C.

The Place:

Mikulovice (called "Niklasdorf" in German) is a village that can be found in the North-East of the Czech Republic, right at the Polish border.

Possible Follow-Up:

There is quite a bit of material on this case that can simply be found through the internet. Much of it is just based on the article sent out by Czech News Agency, edited and reprinted in various languages. But there are also more original articles like the one pulished by Herald Scotland. Just have a go at it and see what else you may find.
