A 400,000 year old neanderthal skull has gone on display in Newcastle as part of a new exhibition of some of the oldest human remains ever found in Britain.

The skull was found in Kent in the 1930's and has gone on display at the Great North Museum alongside a 60,000-year old hand axe, a 14,000-year-old harpoon point, and a pendant made from a badger’s tooth, all of which were found in a cave in Dorset.
