We are working to create resources to support Palaeolithic artefact collecting on the North Norfolk coast. Resources will include a guide on how to recognise worked flint, how best to document your finds, and a general guide to the Palaeolithic archaeology of the Happisburgh area.
Whilst we are creating our new resources you might like to take a look at some posters that we created for our Being Human event at the Wenn Evans Centre in 2019.

Responsible Fossil Hunting
Fossil collecting is an enjoyable and rewarding experience, but it needs to be done responsibly to maintain Norfolk’s amazing fossil heritage for future generations. Download the free fact sheet from Norfolk Museums Service and learn how to responsibly collect fossils, with tips on how to keep safe and within the law.
Mammoths are amongst the most commonly found vertebrate fossil remains on the Norfolk coast. However, most of the fossils discovered are fragments of bones, tusks and teeth. This Fossils Mammoth fact sheet from Norfolk Museums Service provides information about the three types of mammoth that have been discovered on the Norfolk coast.
