You cannot help but be fascinated by this story as it all over the newspapers as well as internet (NewsThump having a field day). Found myself looking back to the Paviland 'Lady' whose red ochre covered bones predate Cheddar Man by some 20,000 plus years. Stephen Moss for the Guardian stayed in the cave a few years back and wrote a piece which is still an interesting read.[...]/apr/25/paviland-cave-red-lady

What jumped out at me while reading was this paragraph ...
The bones, stained red, are laid out in boxes, but you have no sense of the body, which is reckoned to have been 6ft tall, narrow-hipped and gracile – more African than European in body type and typical of a man who had to cover huge distances on foot.
