Gazetteer of Middle Palaeolithic sites on Thanet

Apologies in advance for
this rather sparse  display!

There are at present no known occurrences of Middle Palaeolithic activity on Thanet.

The lack of evidence may indicate a genuine absence of human occupation in Thanet during this time. Evidence throughout Britain suggests that there was a significant break in human occupation country-wide during the period c. 180,000 - 60,000 BC.

I hope that one day we will get to present some evidence of our distant Neanderthal ancestors.

Please keep checking back here!
