A skeleton thought to be about 4,000 years old has been discovered by builders working on a hotel in Wooler in Northumberland.
Documenting the rare discovery, archaeologists have spent the last few days measuring, collecting and detailing every single inch of a bronze age tomb, which was uncovered behind the hotel site.
Work at the Tankerville Arms was halted when the burial chamber - otherwise known as a cist - was found by workmen, who were excavating trenches when they came made the discovery and immediately stopped digging.
Experts say the person who was buried in the cist had probably died two to three hundred years before Tutankhamun lived.
Although everything inside has been taken away, the owner of the hotel intends to keep the tomb.
