TA DAH! Here is our very first update on what was inside the early Bronze Age urn from Morecambe. Packed with almost 3 kilos of human bone, here's what we now know about who was inside.
Here's what we now know about the cremated human remains inside the Morecambe urn.

Something funny for Blue Monday 😉
Considering how dearly archaeologists cherish their well-worn trowels... Could losing a trowel follow a similar pattern to the five stages of grief ?

or the more often heard conversation "Can I have my mattock back?"
Reply "I lent it to ...so and so Why?"
"But they left site a couple of days ago!"
"Fancy a beer after we clear this loose?"
"OK!"

The first clue was found when a local historian noticed pottery sherds washing up on the shore. http://www.livescience.com/57496-16th-century-spanish-shipwreck-off-florida.html
The third of six sunken Spanish ships that were lost in a hurricane in 1559 has been discovered off the coast of Pensacola, Florida.

"We come down to the tunnel at solstice to play drums and drink their mystical prosecco" 😂 in all seriousness though... opinions please!
FUTURE generations will walk around the Stonehenge A303 road tunnel wondering why it was constructed, it has been confirmed.

You cannot expand the A303 to dual carriageway without destroying the barrows and ditches either side of the road. Tunneling under is sacrilege to the growing Neopaganists.
My answer would be to close the A303 between Amesbury and Winterbourne Stoke to all but local traffic (very little) and divert the road south between the two points Then set up Park and ride services for tourists from thoe two places for access to the monument landscape with perhaps guides on the buses to help the tourists understand the lanscape
Perhaps longterm employment for archaeologists until the UK housing market recovers

Probably the best archaeology jumper we've ever seen.

Pickles galore! Crossrail archaeologists have found over 13,000 jam jars, pickle pots and relishes from one of London's first condiment shops, including mushroom ketchup, Newcastle marmalade, piccalili and plum jam. Which one would you most like to try??

And they cut out a horse's tongue. Probably.

Clever!
Close examination of an ancient toy chariot has revealed a clue to what helped lead ancient Roman charioteers to victory.

A group of explorers and archaeologists were struck down by an aggressive tropical disease which eats through the face while uncovering the mysteries of a legendary lost city in Honduras.

Remember this urn? It's the one we found buried upside down, on a hill in Lancashire and then broadcast LIVE from the lab as we opened it up. Our first set of results on what was inside is about to come in. Before they do, here's Neil Wilkin, curator of the Bronze Age collection at the British Museum on why this discovery is so very important to our understanding of the Bronze Age in northern England.

Yes or no?
A team of architects has concocted an immodest proposal to resurrect a supersized 21st-century version of the original Colossus of Rhodes.

It sounds surprisingly goofy.
