Description

Over the last twenty years discoveries at Happisburgh have transformed knowledge of early humans in Britain and established this corner of Norfolk as a key location for the study of our Stone Age past. Come and find out more about the research at Happisburgh and explore the connections between our early ancestors in Britain and changes in climate and the landscape of the region. Join us for an evening of talks on Friday 15th November, and hear from researchers working on humans origins and on the archaeological excavations that have taken place at Happisburgh.

Speakers:

Prof Chris Stringer, Natural History Museum - The Early Human Occupation of Britain and Europe

Prof Nick Ashton, The British Museum - Stepping into Britain: Happisburgh in its European context
