On The Beach: Discovering Early Humans in Norfolk (Talk)

November 15, 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

At this evening talk discover the archaeological excavations that have taken place at Happisburgh and what this reveals about humans’ origins. 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 the Stone Age. Come and find out more about the research at Happisburgh and explore the connections between our early ancestors in Britain, changes in climate and the landscape of the region.

On Saturday 16 November between 11:00 and 16:00 there will also be an exhibition and hands-on activities.

This event is part of the ‘This Time It’s Personal’ Being Human hub series by Queen Mary University of London and King’s College London.
