The exhibition is based on the discoveries of a 50-strong team of archaeologists, palaeontologists and geologists – led by the museum’s very own Professor Chris Stringer – who have been working on human activity during the Pleistocene, a massive stretch of time from 1.8 million to 12,000 years ago. Since they began in 2001, they’ve pushed back the date for the first human occupation of Britain from an impressive 500,000 years ago to a staggering 900,000 years ago.
