Early Humans With Tiny Brains Lived In Norfolk Caravan Park [VIDEO]

 

 

 

 

” Scientists believe that early humans may have created one of their first settlements around Manor Caravan Park in Happisburgh, Norfolk.

  Stone tools and fossilised remains uncovered so far are believed to be the oldest found in the UK, dating back one million years.

  Ancestors of modern-day humans existed then, a primitive predecessor of Homo antecessor, one of the earliest known human species in Europe, and also Homo erectus.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1.8M-Year-Old Skull Gives Glimpse Of Our Evolution

 

” The discovery of a 1.8-million-year-old skull of a human ancestor buried under a medieval Georgian village provides a vivid picture of early evolution and indicates our family tree may have fewer branches than some believe, scientists say.”   

 

 

 

 

”  The fossil is the most complete pre-human skull uncovered. With other partial remains previously found at the rural site, it gives researchers the earliest evidence of human ancestors moving out of Africa and spreading north to the rest of the world, according to a study published Thursday.”

 

 

” The skull and other remains offer a glimpse of a population of pre-humans of various sizes living at the same time — something that scientists had not seen before for such an ancient era. This diversity bolsters one of two competing theories about the way our early ancestors evolved, spreading out more like a tree than a bush.”
