Palaeolithic Life and Environment in Worcestershire

  • 13th April 2016

Lost Landscapes; Palaeolithic Life and Environment in Worcestershire.  Herds of Mammoths walking across the M5 at Strensham, Lions stalking through the Bredon Hills, the ice  and tundra spreading across the landscape…..which part of our Ice Age past are you most interested in? 

Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service and Museums Worcestershire are currently running a short questionnaire to find out about the public’s interest in our Palaeolithic past to help us shape an exciting new exhibition and event based on this period. 

We would really appreciate anyone who can take a few minutes to fill the survey out, available at:   https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/iceageworc . Paper copies are also available from the Historic Environment Record at The Hive.
