Human remains found at Neolithic site in Wales

Human remains, including several teeth, have been found at a Neolithic site on a Welsh island.

Archaeologist Catherine Rees said: “Human remains are incredibly rare outside of megalithic tombs in this area as bone seldom survives in North Wales.

“Several teeth have been recovered which will enable scientists to discover more about Anglesey’s first farmers.”

Teeth hold vital information about the individual’s diet and contain details of where the person grew up.

Further analysis will show what the people of Llanfaethlu were eating 6000 years ago and whether they grew up in North Wales or had moved in from further afield.
