Ned Kelly

It was recently announced that the remains of Australian folk hero Ned Kelly has been identified using DNA analysis. Scientists compared the remains with the DNA samples from the great grandson of Kelly’s sister, Ellen, which confirmed that the bones belonged to Kelly. In the late 19th century, Kelly led a gang of bank robbers in Australia and became a symbol of the Irish working class’s resistance against the oppression of the British ruling class in Australia.
