Scientists reveal the surprising genetic identity of early human remains from roughly 400,000 years ago in Spain (Atapuerca). New tests on human bones hidden in a Spanish cave for some 400,000 years set a new record for the oldest human DNA sequence ever decoded—and may scramble the scientific picture of our early relatives. The bones were first thought to belong to European Neanderthals, but analysis showed they are genetically closer to the Siberian Denisovans.
A tiny tot from 45 thousand years ago. The majority of Neanderthal bones found are small children. A testament to the fact that life was hard during the last ice age. Perhaps children born in the dead of winter never made it. There have been baby Neanderthal bones found in caves amongst the refuse piles suggesting infanticide as well.

An ancient ceremonial site the size of Stonehenge has been discovered on the North Downs. The exact purpose of the site - a neolithic “henge” near Hollingbourne - remains shrouded in mystery, but a large amount of burnt bone and pottery uncovered suggest it was used in a ritual capacity for almost 2000 years, as far back as 2500BC, the end of the Stone Age.
Mictecacihuatl Known as the Mistress of Bones and the Lady of the Dead, she is the Queen of Mictlan, the Aztec Underworld, who still presides over today’s Day of the Dead rituals.

Bone Chalice. Sedlec Ossuary, Kostnice Sedlec, or "Bone Church" in Kutná Hora, Czech Republic. Bone pyramids were stacked in the ossuary by (according to legend) a half-blind monk around 1511, when a mass grave was unearthed and the bones needed a new home. In 1870, František Rint was emplyed to put the bones in order, and so the ex-woodcarver did; among his works of bone art, he left behind his signature in, of course, bones.
Manchester Museum - meet Stan the T-Rex by purplemattfish on Flickr. "He is a 65 million year old Tyrannosaurus Rex called "Stan" named after Stan Sacrison who discovered him in 1987. This is a resin cast of the bones that I imagine is in a number of museums around the world."
