Cheddar Gorge in Somerset, England. In 1903 the remains of a human male, since named Cheddar Man were found a short distance inside Gough's cave, he is Britain's oldest complete human skeleton having been dated to approx. 7150 BCE. Mitochondrial DNA taken from the skeleton has been found to match that of Adrian Targett, a man living in the area today indicating that Cheddar Man is a very distant ancestor, amazing!
