Archaeologists in Taiwan have found a fossil of a mother holding an infant child in her arms, which is almost 5000 years old.

The 48 sets of remains unearthed in graves in the Taichung area are the earliest trace of human activity found in central Taiwan, dating back 4800 years.

The most striking discovery among them was the skeleton of a young mother looking down at a child cradled in her arms.

The mother was 1.6m tall; the baby 50cm. The excavation of the site began in May 2014 and took a year to complete.

Carbon dating was used to determine the ages of the fossils, which included five children.
