Iron Age skeleton uncovered in Ireland by Storm Ophelia

A 1,500-year-old skeleton was revealed by Storm Ophelia last month in Ireland.

Following the examination, it was established that the bones were historical, and possibly dating to the Iron Age, between about 500BC and 400AD.

It’s estimated this person lived between 1,500 and 2,500 years ago around the time the Celtic tribes arrived in Ireland.

The skeleton is now to be taken into the custody of the National Museum of Ireland.
