Manchester loans early human finds

The Manchetser Museum is loaning fossils and archaeology showing some of the best evidence of early humans in Britain.  The objects were found at Creswell Crags near Nottingham, where a new visitor’s centre is opening later this year.

Early humans lived in the caves and hunted animals such as deer, mammoths and lions which lived lived there in the last Ice Age.

Some of the objects have not been seen in decades and include tools, bones with human cut marks and bones from the animals that lived there. The objects were collected around 100 years ago when the caves were first excavated and most have never been seen at Creswell Crags. The spectacular new visitor’s centre will certainly be worth a visit if you are in that part of the country.
