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 around 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).
