Homo sapiens


Homo sapiens – 195 kya to present. Evidence for ancient humans has been found in Britain in Kents Cavern, Torquay; Paviland, Wales; Gough’s Cave, Somerset; and at Cresswell Crags in Derbyshire. Our occupation has not been continual though, with suggestions of the absence of Homo sapiens towards the end of the last ice age, the Devensian, when temperatures plummeted.
