Skeleton Discovered Under 15th Century Ship is Much Older

Experts examining an Iron Age skeleton found discovered buried beneath a medieval ship in Newport, South Wales, say it is "remarkably well preserved." Tests on the bones by forensic archaeologists at Lampeter University, Mid Wales, have shown that they date back to 170 B.C.

The bones were found three years ago, and the findings mean they are 1,500 years older than the 15th century ship under which they were discovered.
