Archaeology and Early History

Traces of early 'man' (including women!) in Britain suggest occasional visits during the warmer periods within the Anglian glaciation, and during what is known as the Hoxnian interglacial period. Two distinct early Prehistoric cultures can be recognised in the Dartford area hundreds of thousands of years old. Each culture had its own different tool-making technologies. These cultural traditions are known as the Clactonian and the Acheulian.
