    Sweden's 'exceptional' 7,000-year-old burial comes to life

What stood out to archaeologists was that the inhabitant of this particular grave was buried sitting up, cross-legged, and surrounded by hundreds of animal bones and teeth. Now the ’seated woman’ or ‘shaman’ as some call her, has been expertly recreated for a new exhibit.
