||Fairweather Eden : Life Half a Million Years Ago As
Revealed by the Excavations at Boxgrove by Michael Pitts and Mark Roberts
Roberts is the man primarily responsible for the excavations at Boxgrove, Sussex, which
produced evidence of human presence in England half a million years ago, a date earlier
than previously assumed and earlier than such evidence elsewhere in Europe has
indicated. This book covers the history of the dig, gives considerable information on
earlier archaeological efforts and theories, and describes mundane matters like funding,
staffing, and the storage of bones from shrews and rhinoceroses.
