10 of the Most Horrific Sacrifical Ceremonies

Viking Slave Sacrifice
As if living your entire life as a slave wasn’t bad enough, your master’s death would be your own. The Vikings did this so that the deceased would have servants to care for them in the afterlife. There is one upside, though; if you were a Viking slave, your death would have been quick. Slaves were beheaded before being placed on a wooden vessel and sent out to sea, where they would then be burned in a traditional Viking burial ceremony.
