Neanderthal found in North Sea

A fantastic Neanderthal skull fragment has been found at the bottom of the  North Sea.

This is a really important find as it shows that Neanderthals were living around Britain around 60,000 years ago. It is great evidence of the vast grassy plain that was were the North Sea is now. The Neanderthals would have moved into the area to hunt. The end of the Last Ice Age caused the ice to melt and flood what was land.

The Manchester Museum has one of the most inportant collections of animals form the Last Ice Age in the country.
