Most of a human skeleton excavated at Stonehenge in 1923, believed destroyed in the London bombing of 1941, was re-located in 1999. New study of the bones shows them to represent a man of Anglo-Saxon era (not Neolithic or Roman as previously suggested) aged 28-32, born in central southern England. He had been beheaded, probably with a sword. The historical context for this incident is discussed.
