Half a million years ago, when Britain was a peninsula of continental Europe, a small hunting
group of early humans occupied the area around Boxgrove, near Chichester in west Sussex, in
southern England. A shin bone and two teeth of an adult individual, an exceptional find at such an early date, show that these people belonged to a species named Homo heidelbergensis who were the ancestors of both Homo sapiens, anatomically modern humans, and Homo neanderthalensis, the Neanderthals.
