For all the hard-nosed archaeologists who've seen it all and dug it all: is this the most unlikely find ever made???
Ex-ca-vate! Ex-ca-vate! The monsters of Skaro that had you running behind your sofa as a child have been found in Hampshire. The 6th Doctor could explain this.

When it comes to archaeological finds, what you really want is some thing with an 'est' at the end of it (oldest... biggest... shiny-est!).

Louise Ord thinks the Star Wars film set is just as important as other archaeology. What would Yoda say?

I told you I was ill! http://ow.ly/LX1fw
 
We know that illnesses have existed as long as there have been humans to get ill – but how do archaeologists identify disease in the past? Here are six tell-tale signs that help us find out... http://ow.ly/LX1fw

Lies, damn lies and archaeology. A step by step guide.
 
You have been warned.
If you meet an archaeologist, here's a warning: don't believe everything they say.

Not a day over Two-thousand and Forty.
 
We just tried #HowOldRobot on some of history's most famous faces. That lead-based make-up doesn't seem to have done Lizzy the First any favours... http://ow.ly/MoztL
You may have seen the latest app released by Microsoft - it's a new facial analysis tool called How Old Do I Look?, which uses “state-of-the-art, cloud-based algorithms” to recognise human faces and then estimate an age and gender. Naturally it doesn’t always get it right (you may have noticed poor old Ramesses II has…
