Geology and London
(15th of April 2018)
Explore how the geology below greater London has shaped its landscapes, infrastructure and built environment, making it such a fascinating and visually diverse city; look at stone types and their effects on the buildings around us.
The Palaeolithic People of Britain
(4th of March 2018)
For the past 900,000 years humans have thrived in a diversity of landscapes throughout Great Britain. This course examines the evidence that archaeologists and palaeoanthropologists have unearthed throughout the island. We begin with the earliest evidence of humanity at the site of Happisburgh (pronounced Haysbora), Norfolk to the rich archaeological remains at the 500,000 year old site of Boxgrove to the mammoths of Trafalgar Square, 100,000 years ago.
