Have they found evidence of human sacrifice
in Australia? Foundation sacrifice, the consecration of a building with the life of a human or animal, is an ancient practice. Was it practiced in Australia?
Builders renovating a 130-year-old Birchgrove house have found the bones of a child under a sandstone fireplace
Illuminating information on foundation sacrifice has been collected by D.L. Ashliman in his article Human Sacrifice in Legends and Myths
. I also discovered a fine point-counterpoint as to whether living children were sacrificed to the gods of Phoenician Punic Carthage
at Phoenicia.org, an wonderful site for budding Phoenicianistas.
