Retired history teacher believes he looks like Cheddar Man

When Adrian Targett, a retired history teacher from Somerset, walked in to his local news-agent’s yesterday morning, he was startled to see a familiar face staring up at him.

That face, appearing on the front page of several newspapers, belonged to a distant relative of his — around 10,000 years distant, actually — known as Cheddar Man.

Found in Gough’s Cave in Cheddar Gorge in 1903, Cheddar Man is the oldest complete skeleton to be discovered in the UK, and has long been hailed as the first modern Briton who lived around 7,150 BC.
