"Fascinating and illuminating – this book takes you on a trip to the seaside and back into the depths of the Ice Age, walking in the steps of our distant ancestors." - Professor Alice Roberts
Norfolk’s Deep History Coast is a place of unique archaeological and palaeontological discoveries of international significance. Spectacular finds have transformed our understanding of the first human occupation of northern Europe and fossilised human footprints show people were here nearly a million years ago. This is the only part of Britain to have evidence of four species of humans, and it has also been home to giant prehistoric creatures, including three species of mammoth.
This book will take you on a journey through time, looking at the geology, natural landscape and the creatures that have inhabited the area. Here you can explore the fascinating and beautiful sites around the 150km of Deep History Coast and see how you can share in this exciting adventure of discovery.
