A Little History Of Norfolk


Recommended Posts

I started reading this today, a gift from a dear friend who has obviously picked up on my love of Norfolk. It’s a book by John A Davies who had been chief curator of the Norfolk Museums Service. Very much enjoying it so far, though I’m only part way through the first chapter.

So far I’ve learned that evidence of the very first human’s in Britain date back to around 950,000 years ago and were discovered in Happisburgh in 2013. That’s a lot earlier than had been thought. Fossils of very large exotic animals such as giant elephants dating from between 750,000 and 500,000 years ago were found near Norton Subcourse and gigantic mammoth bones found near West Runton.

Looking forward to reading more!
