Stone head found in Hampshire

"A retired fisherman has discovered an ancient stone head which experts say could be 24,000 years old - the oldest found in Britain." The five-inch stone head was found off Long Island in Hampshire and according to archaeologists could be a piece of Neanderthal art. "A similar stone head was found in a Neanderthal cave in northern France and was dated back to 28,000 BC."
