Learn more on who lived in Brighton over 5000 years ago

Residents are being invited to an event this weekend to learn more about one of Brighton’s oldest historical sites.

An open day on Saturday (August 23) at Whitehawk camp near Brighton Racecourse will shed light on the Neolithic people who first occupied the city over 5000 years ago.

A community archaeological dig is underway, and details of the open day are here.  You can hear an interview with the project manager here.

Below is an artist’s reconstruction by Ian Dennis, and a picture showing the dig today.
