Leicestershire archaeologists find Iron Age skeleton
A team of archaeologists has unearthed an Iron Age skeleton during excavations in Leicestershire.
Dr Jermey Taylor, who has been examining the bones at the University of Leicester, said they were providing a wealth of information about how ancient people lived.
He believes the remains, found at Burrough on the Hill, could have belonged to an important young man who lived 200 years before the Romans arrived in Britain.
Dr Taylor added it was unsual from them to come across an ancient body buried in the county.
The discovery has been featured on a BBC2 documentary Digging For Britain.
