Stone head found in Hampshire

"A retired fisherman has discovered an ancient stone head which experts say could be 24,000 years old - the oldest found in Britain." The five-inch stone head was found off Long Island in Hampshire and according to archaeologists could be a piece of Neanderthal art. "A similar stone head was found in a Neanderthal cave in northern France and was dated back to 28,000 BC."

Full story and photo appear on page 7 of The Times, 2 October 2004.

Hampshire Treasures


In case you're visiting sites in Hants and wondering what formicaant, pure joy, jimit and others are referring to, this is it. Indispensible but only as good as its sources. Refers often to PHFC (Proceedings of the Hampshire Field Club, which is now published as Hampshire Studies, an annual journal), which is available at the Hants Record Office next to Winchester railway station.

A high-tech survey at Buckland Rings Iron Age hillfort in Lymington has revealed evidence of 2,000 year old roundhouses within the fort’s ramparts.
The geophysical survey was led by the New Forest National Park Authority with local volunteers and students from Bournemouth University.
Up to seven prehistoric dwellings were identified, which would have once housed a community of hunters and farmers that would grow into the modern Lymington. Trading throughout Britain and across the sea, these ancient ancestors would have lived in round wooden buildings caked in a soil-based mixture.
