- the item in the skull may not have been an arrow but a Roman nail
- hands were crossed so possibly tied when the skeleton was interred
- rib bone was sent to carbon dating labs - both labs said the individual could have died in 1485
- skeleton mostly well preserved and complete
- adult male with an unusually slender almost feminine build for a man
- matches known facts- no suggestion of withered arm- individual of age 20-late 30s
- probably of slightly taller height than average male of the time
- unknown cause of curvature of the spine
- the individual probably wasn't born with it, but it developed after the age of 10.
