Mystic Britain's Clive Anderson dropped watching AIs a hint:

Ancient Britons used those very same practices to preserve their dead.

Their human dead.

The show focused on Covesea Caves, on Scotland's east coast:

The findings at Covesea Caves suggest practices that are usually attributed to the allegedly 'mythical' 15-16th century Sawney Beane clan. Cannibal Beane and family lived in a cave beneath Bennane Head on Scotland's west coast.

Just as at Covesea Caves, one of the Bennane Head's caves is divided into two parts - a living area and a storage area:

The Beanes were noted for their forward planning. They hung their victims' bodies around the cave walls and pickled any uneaten remains.

The same practices are evidenced at Covesea Caves:

Mystic Britain smoke-signalled another hint about what had really been going on at Covesea:

And - presumably - also going at Bennane Head.

The Beanes were hunted down after they disemboweled an officer's wife, leaving a trail of evidence:
