Britain: One Million Years of the Human Story



Britain: One Million Years of the Human Story is the fascinating new exhibition at the Natural History Museum. Going back to the Swanscombe skull (from the earliest known Neanderthal in Britain and the Clacton spear (the oldest wooden spear in the world), visitors are taken back in time with some amazing objects from Britain’s past.

Drawing on twelve years of painstaking research, the exhibition is an enchanting exploration of the changing faces and spaces of our island – which surprisingly wasn’t even an island for most of the last million years. Using all the latest scientific gizmos and gadgets, scientists have created life sized models to bring rarely seen specimens to life, allowing visitors to catch a glimpse of how things were many years before even the Romans, Saxons and Vikings had wandered around this ancient land.
