Channel 4 to unveil the face of Britain’s oldest skeleton

The one hour film will air as a part of Channel 4’s critically-acclaimed Secret History strand and follows the UK’s most ambitious ancient DNA project to date.

The skeleton goes by the name of Cheddar Man because of where he was unearthed, Gough’s Cave in Cheddar Gorge, Somerset over 100 years ago.

He has had his DNA analysed by top scientists from University College London and the Natural History Museum.
