Llandudno Stone Age skeleton Blodwen returns home

A Stone Age skeleton found in a north Wales seaside resort at the end of the 19th century is returning home after spending 120 years in England.

The skeleton of a woman who lived around 5,500 years ago was found in rocks on the Little Orme, Llandudno, during quarrying work in 1891.

Quarry owner Joseph Storey took her back to his hometown in Lancashire, where she was displayed in a museum.

She will now be placed on permanent display in Llandudno Museum.

Matthew Richards looks at what the skeleton tells us about Blodwen.
