Altamira Cave
The Altamira Cave was discovered by chance in 1869 by Marcelino de Santuola. Exploration began in 1875, but it was not until
1879 that the first paintings were discovered. Their surprising quality and exceptionally well-preserved state caused their
specialists to doubt whether they were genuine. Their discoverer died before his lucky find had been officially accepted as
authentic. Finally, the truth won and at the beginning of the century the scientific community submitted to the evidence. The
discovery was exceptional evidence of the Magdalenian culture in southern Europe.

Archaeological Excavations at Boxgrove
The Middle Pleistocene site of Boxgrove, near Chichester in West Sussex contains the largest area of preserved palaeolithic
landsurface in Europe. In 1993, a 500,000 year-old tibia (shin bone), belonging to a man who stood more than 1.8 metres tall and
weighed over 85 kilos, was found here. During the excavations in the summer of 1995, archaeologists unearthed two hominid
teeth, thought to be also from a mature adult. These were found a metre below where the shin bone had been discovered.

Butser Ancient Farm
Butser Ancient Farm is a replica of the sort of farm which would have existed in the British Iron Age circa 300 BC. Founded in
1972, it moved to it's present site at Bascombe Copse in 1992. The farm has buildings, structures, animals and crops of the kind
that existed at that time.

Celts
The Celts were a group of peoples that occupied lands stretching from the British Isles to Gallatia. The Celts had many dealings
with other cultures that bordered the lands occupied by these peoples, and even though there is no written record of the Celts
stemming from their own documents, we can piece together a fair picture of them from archeological evidence as well as
historical accounts from other cultures.

In search of the Neanderthals
Sima de las Palomas and Cueva Negra, Murcia, Spain Two years ago, Michael Walker began excavations of a rock
shelter called Cueva Negra ("Black Cave") in the mountains of southeastern Spain. There was every hope of uncovering
long-hidden information about our ancient ancestors. His efforts have been rewarded with discoveries of teeth of Neanderthal
humans, remnants of extinct animals, and the stone tools used to butcher those animals.

Significance of Celtic Coinage
Celtic monetary development is seen in its most concentrated form in Britain. Originally the Ancient Britons used sword blades as currency before they started minting coins. The earliest Celtic coins found in Britain "were of pure gold, being direct imitations of the gold stater of Philip II of Macedon...the spread of knowledge of such coinage is...generally held to be the result of migration
and in particular the use of Celtic mercenaries by Philip and Alexander."
