Evidence of europeans practicing human sacrifice


Since by now I have read about many remains, and even seen some. that seems best explained as remains of sacrificed humans, i just wonder how widespread such practices may have been, though I know most about pre-christian Scandinavia. Recently thus I read about burials in Lofoten, Northern Norway, indicating people with higher positions in society was followed in death by decapitated servants (slaves or "traell"s). The people found in danish bogs are usually seen in the same way, though there could be alternative explanations for their violent deaths (then some details do not fit very well in in many cases).
