Ten years ago research was renewed on the Ice Age prehistory of the Channel Island of Jersey. A decade later we are beginning to share what we understand about how the wider now-submerged landscape of the English Channel, a land we call La Manche, was used by early people including Neanderthal populations and those of our own species. In this talk we’ll explore the archaeological record of key site like La Cotte de St Brelade and Les Varines, where the earliest art in the region as recently discovered. We’ll also consider the wider record of the northern French and southern British coasts
