Britain: One Million Years of the Human StoryLook back at Britain long before the Romans, Saxons and Vikings arrived at the Natural History Museum's major exhibition, Britain: One Million Years of the Human Story. Rarely seen specimens on display include a skull from the earliest known Neanderthal in Britain, and the oldest wooden spear in the world. These and other remarkable objects from our past are brought to life using the latest scientific techniques and life-size models. Incredible finds from sites around Britain will reveal what life was really like one million years ago. In the words of Professor Chris Stringer, palaeontologist at the Museum and world-leading human origins expert: "From the earliest human fossils in Britain to one of the oldest wooden tools in the world, you will be surprised by the history hidden beneath your feet."
