Archaeologists have found the remains of what could be Britain's oldest surviving human brain.
The team, excavating a York University site, discovered a skull containing a yellow substance which scans showed to be shrunken, but brain-shaped.
Brains consist of fatty tissue which microbes in the soil would absorb, so neurologists believe the find could be some kind of fossilised brain.
The skull was found in an area first farmed more than 2,000 years ago.
More tests will now be done to establish what it is actually made of.

I think the brain thing makes it a mismatch

Oh, I know what it is, and that's no brain...

I'm upset, the "surviving" part was a lie.

I agree with Drekkus.... Must be a mismatch.... although ...... fossilized....
Hmmmmmm... Maybe.
