The Leasowe man skeleton

close up computer image of skull

In the countryside very few skeletons have been found but in 1863 a skeleton was found by workmen near Leasowe Castle in Wirral. From a study of his remains, scientists can tell that he was a well-built man, in his thirties who was used to hard physical work. The remains have since been scientifically dated, making this the only known Romano-British skeleton from Merseyside.

His head was reconstructed by experts at Manchester University specially for this exhibition.
