Norfolk & the North Sea: the past million years Day Conference
Imperial Hotel
Great Yarmouth United Kingdom
Share this event:

Norfolks proximity to the North Sea provides the county with a unique place in history. The earliest known human footprints outside of Africa, dating back almost a million years, were found at Happisburgh, and Norfolk is the only county which contains evidence of four different human species. The worlds most complete skeleton of a Steppe Mammoth was excavated at West Runton, alongside the remains of other species from warmer environments such lions, rhinoceros and even hyaena, providing proof that the region has been experiencing climate change over a very long period of time. Extreme temperature variation from tropical zones to ice ages, and changes in water levels impacted significantly on the area now occupied by the North Sea. Recent archaeological investigation, alongside discoveries made by industrial dredging and seismic research, are revealing intriguing new insights into the landscape formation and human and animal habitation in and around the North Sea basin.

Great Yarmouth Local History & Archaeological Society is delighted to present a one-day conference on 15 October 2022, 10.00-16.30 at the Imperial Hotel, Great Yarmouth, NR30 1EQ to further explore this fascinating topic.
