Scientists in York have found one of the oldest brains in Europe.

They've been carrying out tests on a Iron Age man's skull - which was excavated at the York Uni in 2008.

The head - which dates back 2 thousand 5 hundred years - still has parts of the man's brain material inside.

Researchers say it's an incredible find as everything should have decayed years ago.
