Star Carr the beginnings of Mesolithic Britain
A talk by Don Hensonposter_dec18_sml02

Star Carr is a site that tells us a great deal about the lives of the people who recolonised Britain after the last Ice Age, 11,000 years ago. It is also a site with a unique preservation of remains of life at the time, and the latest excavations have revealed new evidence for this period. Don Henson will reveal the new picture we have gained of Early Mesolithic life from this site
Don Henson is Associate Lecturer in the Department of Archaeology at the University of York and was for 17 years part of the council of the CBA
