Stone Age skull found on school outing
A schoolboy from Napp School in Lofoten (Norway) has discovered a human skull that may be between 5,000 and 6,000 years old. 11 year old Aleksander Johansen spotted “something white” on a field trip: “When I got it out I saw it was a skull,” said Aleksander. Upon examination by archaeologists from the Viking Museum in Borg the skull was found to be in exceptionally good condition, with only a few teeth missing but otherwise intact. The skull was found close to a previous dig which in 1969 to 1971 uncovered three remnants from the Old Stone Age, the oldest dated at 3,100 BCE.
