Ice man cometh

July 27, 2001

(Photograph) - Dennis Skinner, MP for Bolsover, at the launch of a new website about Creswell Crags, a beauty spot in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. The site, in Mr Skinner's constituency, is one of Europe's most important archaeological landscapes, preserving the only cluster of Ice Age cave sites in the UK. Between 70,000 and 10,000 years ago, the caves and fissures of the crags provided shelter for Neanderthal and anatomically modern people through a crucial period of human evolution. The project is a partnership between the British Museum, Creswell Heritage Trust with Derby Museum and Art Gallery.
