Little is known of this period of the Stone Age in eastern Norway, making the sites of particular interest.

Gaute Reitan of the Museum of Cultural History in Oslo, who led the excavation, told MailOnline that normally on sites like this the team finds tools, weapons and production waste - but finding organic material is very rare.

‘We thought it was too good to be true,’ said Reitan.

‘Locally geologically favourable conditions had preserved the bone material.

‘We discovered what turned out to be what we think is a human skull.’

The top of the skull was badly preserved and the inside was partly exposed, showing the grey, spongey and clay-like matter.
