Experts have uncovered the 4,000 year old bones of a Thanet chieftain. The Iron Age burial was discovered during excavation of the 3m sq ft Thanet Earth greenhouse project on the west of the isle.
Head archaeologist Professor Mick Beard told the Gazunder: 'We were amazed at this find. We've spent ten years digging up stuff for Channel 4 and found cock all. Now we've dragged over this old cabbage patch and discovered a skeleton complete with grave goods!'
A beer mug and other status symbols were found in the grave, indicating that the Bronze Age body could have been that of a high ranking official. 'He would have stood about six feet tall, but he was really no beauty,' added Professor Beard.
Artists have now reconstructed what Thanet's top man may have looked like.
