Skeleton linked to Norman invasion of 1066

1 post in this topic

A skeleton found in East Sussex is the first discovered of a man likely to have been involved in battles at the time of the 1066 Norman invasion.

Skeleton 180, dug up from a medieval cemetery, was thought to have died at the Battle of Lewes in 1264 but is now known to be 200 years older.

Experts say the discovery could prompt a new re-evaluation of what happened in Britain in the aftermath of 1066.
