Under one metallic walkway, the headless skeleton of a young boy rests in an open grave. At his side, a marble replica of a hen's egg, which to pagans represented the rebirth of the body through reincarnation. Nearby, countless skeletons lie scattered among the remnants of terra cotta vases used in pagan ceremonies. The underground air is damp with the smell of wet dirt, and the clay tubes used by the pagans to feed their dead with honey and syrup still protrude, fingerlike, from the ground.<br><br><!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15255311/site/newsweek/">---CONTINUED---</a><!--EZCODE LINK END--> <p></p><i></i>
