8,000-year-old Mesolithic site found in England
Published on November 20th, 2012 | by Admin0
The finding is a first for archeologists, who have always assumed that Mesolithic man was nomadic, but this site presents the possibility that several families could have lived in just one place.
Radiocarbon dating that took place towards the end of last month proved the findings, based near Sefton Village church, dated back to around 5,800BC.
Around this time Britain had just separated from Northern Europe and become the island as we now know it – so these were amongst the first ever original Britons.
