A team of archaeologists in China have unearthed a 16,000-year-old human skull after three years of investigation.
The skull was found alongside tens of thousands of stone artifacts in south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.
Researcher Yu Minghui told the Chinese news agency Xinhuanet it was the only complete skull from that period ever found in southern China.
The skull was discovered inside a cave system that covers over 100 square meters that was discovered back in 2014.
The site was the second area of Palaeolithic tombs to be found in China.
