Sussex Ice Age Map


We’ve been experimenting with using simple Google Maps to share information about Ice Age finds held in Sussex museums.

To produce a definitive map and set of useful linked images would be a considerable and expensive undertaking. But the value of such a map is demonstrating how widespread, and potentially local  to where people live, finds of the distant Ice Age area and then unlocking the stories of landscape and environmental change, discovery and analysis which come along with each mammoth tooth or ancient stone tool.
