Homo

Homo. is a tour of the UK via it’s prehistoric archaeological record. Focusing on the ten waves of human occupation in Britain over a one million year period, the project begins with the site of the very first human settlers in Britain 900,000 years ago, and ends with the first appearance of us, Homo Sapiens, 40,000 years ago. This photo essay traces the archaeological evidence of these repeated stages of colonisation. Each image represents a location where prehistoric archaeological evidence has been found, accompanied by photograms of “artefacts” collected from these sites.
