British Isles Prehistory Archive

The British Isles Prehistory Archive presents a rich array of monuments, art and tools found throughout the British Isles.

The island was first inhabited by people who crossed over the land bridge from the European mainland. Traces of modern humans – Homo sapiens – date from about 30,000 years ago. Until about 10,000 years ago, Great Britain was joined to Ireland, and as recently as 8,000 years ago it was joined to the continent by a strip of low marsh to what is now Denmark and the Netherlands. Great Britain became an island at the end of the Pleistocene ice age when sea levels rose due to isostatic depression of the crust and the melting of glaciers.

  1. Thank you for the notice on the Bradshaw Foundation! Think I’ll be spending most of my free time today reading through the site.

  2. such an interesting resource, thanks for posting the link Philip,

  3. Philip, I just wanted to let you know that I posted a review for the Sacred Nature CD on Amazon.com. I think you’ll be pleased. Since I’ve never slept better in my life, it’s the least I could do!

    Cheers,

    Faith

    • Hey! That’s a fantastic review thank you! May I post it here (or elsewhere) not because I like showing off (he said modestly;)) but because I really believe it can be very helpful to people with sleep difficulties, and I know how much stress those difficulties can create!
