East Anglia

Life calls, and for the time being it's difficult to post daily on the blog. But as the world of budget cuts, oil spills and football thundered by, this news in the Telegraph sounded fascinating -

Ancient 'Britons' lived alongside mammoths and sabre-tooth cats in East Anglia up to 950,000 years ago, according to archaeological discoveries that show this country may have been inhabited 250,000 years earlier than previously thought'.

The excavation is part of the Ancient Human Occupation of Britain project.
