HUMAN remains dating back 3,500 years have been discovered in a cavern in the Peak District.
Part of a shin bone belonging to a Bronze Age human was found in a chamber towards the top of Blue John Cavern in Castleton by a group surveying all the Castleton caves as part of a project to produce a 3D model.
They found the four-inch section of tibia, along with an antler and a dog’s skull.
Specialist carbon dating tests have revealed the human bone is around 3,500 years old.Follow @csabian
