The Case

In Oldendorf an der Niederelbe Mr. Nösler did find a proper Shroudeater. At the burial, a human upperarm bone or "Humerus" that did not belong to the corpse itself, had been put across the neck of the deceased. presumably to prevent the shroud of touching the corpse's mouth.

The Date:

The burial is reported to have taken place in the 11th or 12th Century.

The Place:

The town of Oldendorf can be found West of Stade, in the North-West of Germany.

Possible Follow-Up:

There is the article on the SPIEGEL website to check out. There are photos. Plus there may be reports, sketches and further photos to be found about these excavations.
