Skeleton is found - level 2

Scientists found a 4,000 year-old skeleton not far from Stonehenge. The skeleton was a teenager. Scientists are now trying to find out the age and the gender of the teenager.

The skeleton is about a metre and a half in length, and people found it in a foetal position. It was also wearing a necklace.

One doctor described the skeleton as a “wonderful discovery”. Experts hope that it will shed light on the lives of people who lived around Stonehenge and prayed there.

Difficult words: skeleton (all of  the bones inside the body), foetal position (when you lie on your side and you curl up), shed light (to help to explain).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

What do you think will the skeleton tell us?
