Recent fieldwork on the coast of East Anglia by the British Museum has pushed back the evidence of humans in Northern Europe to almost a million years ago.

Curator Nick Ashton will discuss the new evidence from Happisburgh in Norfolk, including the rich fauna, flora, stone tools and the remarkable survival of footprints. The research will be placed in the context of Europe and discusses how humans first adapted to the long, cold winters of northern latitudes, perhaps with the help of clothing shelter and fire.

This lecture includes a complimentary drink.
