Archaeologists have found what they say is the earliest evidence of Neanderthals living in Britain. Two pieces of flint unearthed at motorway works in Dartford, Kent, have now been dated to 110,000 years ago.
     The finds push back the presence of Neanderthals in Britain by 40,000 years or more, said Dr Francis Wenban-Smith, from Southampton University.
     A majority of researchers believe Britain was uninhabited by humans at the time the flint tools were made.
An absence of archaeological evidence suggests people abandoned this land between 200,000 years ago (or 160,000 years ago, depending on who you ask) and 65,000 years ago.

  1. Just been looking at the Stoneage Tools Museum site and come over from there . I quite often find stone and flint artefacts whilst digging in my garden and found your website info and photographs very interesting and helpful indeed .

  2. As always neanderthals are the usual suspects with out one single shred of evidence that they made the stone tools. The same happens with portable rock art and figure stones, Science is so desperate to have us believe there false evolution narrative that what they do has become very little to do with science.
