Four Thousand Year-old Skeleton

Isn't history wonderful? We never know what's going to be uncovered next, especially in a country as old as Britain, and it's all grist to the mill of a historical fiction writer's research.

The latest find, in the Royal Burgh of Windsor, is a skeleton 4,400 years old believed to be from the Copper Age. The woman is partly adorned with gold jewellery and she is believed to have belonged to the upper classes.

You can read the full story in The Independent article.
