Ice Age Island – the Saga Continues
So we have returned for another season in Jersey as part of a three year project to explore the deep prehistoric past, from exploration of the island caves, through the archaeological excavation of hunter gather camps preserved in the island’s interior, to the iconic sites at La Cotte de St Brelade. In all of these locations we aim to discover why this remarkable landmass attracted Neanderthal and modern humans at different time periods. Over the past 3 years we have been acquiring geophysical data both onshore and offshore in order to re-create the landscapes of the past. We have also had a number of investigation sites such as the one at Les Varines shown below.
