Dawn's Journal

No way through

I ran some errands in the village, and then headed over to Swanscombe Heritage Park for a walk.  I was curious as this was the site of the discovery in 1935 of a 400,000 year old skull known as the Swanscombe Woman, a young Neanderthal Woman, and some of the oldest bones found in Britain.

The park was originally a gravel quarry, largely backfilled now to create playing fields and areas of scientific and archeological interest.  It was an interseting walk round with panels describing the area. the paths through a wooded area were very muddy, and at time totally impassible!
