Llandudno's Stone Age skeleton Blodwen returns home

A Stone Age skeleton found in a north Wales is returning home after spending 120 years in England.

The 5,500-year-old female 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.

But the skeleton will now be placed on permanent display in Llandudno Museum.

Archaeology expert Dr Sian James described the find as unique which can tell us so much about the Neolithic period.
