Skull of a middle-aged man
DERSB : 2017.12
Skull of a middle-aged man found at Arbor Low, 5,000-3,500 years old (Late Neolithic or early Bronze Age).
We don't know exactly where at Arbor Low this skull was found. A long barrow was built at Gib Hill 6,000-5,000 years ago, before Arbor Low henge was created. More round barrows were built on and around the henge and Gib Hill between about 4,500 and 3,500 years ago.
