Found yew! The 'oldest tree in Europe' discovered in a Welsh cemetery





The yew tree is more than 5,000 years old, from the era 3,000BC.

It started growing nearly 500 years before the Pharaohs built the Great Pyramid of Giza.

And it was a sapling at about the time work first began on building Stonehenge.

The 60ft wide tree’s age has been revealed by experts who carried out ring dating and DNA analysis.
