Prehistoric Scratchpad

A site on Jersey, a British owned island off the coast of Normandy. Thought to be lost through excavation 100 years ago, it was found to be preserved in 2013. Neanderthals were shown to have come here often from 180 to 40 TYA. Routes could be taken to it over the English Channel during glacial pariods and during warm periods it would be a high point visible off the coast of France. Studies were made to determine where they had been traveling from.
