Yes, that sounds just about right.

The headline is absolutely ridiculous, and I demand it be withdrawn immediately

Could they've used a bigger font for identifying Norfolk? THERE'S NO NEED TO YELL.

I smell MS Paint in the newsroom, or whatever they call the 3-walled barn that houses the Daily Fail.

I don't think I would let my kids run free with a hyena right there. I also didn't know humans had domesticated beavers, they must have been great when building that spare room for the clubhouse.

Current residents of Manor Caravan Park in Happisburgh, Norfolk enjoying a leisurely picnic with family.
 
2014-01-12 02:52:51 PM
Found in Happisburgh? Some claim this name means "'Haep's Town" rather than the common perception of "Happy Town" meaning a place to get happy drunk.

In Canadian French the word "pitoune" derives from the English phrase "happy town" which meant the lumber camp where loggers would "relax" after floating logs down a river. "Pitoune" can mean a floating log, an accommodating woman found in a Happy Town, a cute girl, a log flume ride or a prostitute, and maybe alludes to lumberjacks using knotholes in floating logs as pretend women.

We're missing the beachcomber era of human history. Darn that global warming that melted the glaciers and raised sea levels 300 feet.

Civilization?

Subhead -- "They could have been the Homo antecessor or Homo erectus species."

Figures that the start of British civilization would involve a bunch of homos.

I grew up about five miles from there.  I always knew there was something strange about Happisburgh people

Fossil remains found in Spain suggest they had stronger brows and bigger teeth than modern humans - but also smaller brains and potentially even cannibalistic behaviour.

 As a resident of Norfolk, I can confirm that this is an accurate depiction of the modern populace too.
 
2014-01-12 03:11:25 PM
Genealogy traces my family to Norfolk. Yes. I know the joke is that Norfolk is England's genetic cesspool.

Norfolk VA, (the tooth brushie one) getting a kick.
 
2014-01-12 03:25:03 PM
All the way over here in Canada, I've never heard anything good about Norfolk.
 
2014-01-12 03:33:54 PM
Meanwhile the trailer park has raised its fee from GBP 15 to GBP 30 to include admittance to the birthplace of British civilization.

FunkOut: All the way over here in Canada, I've never heard anything good about Norfolk.


It's... flat. Is that good enough? Okay let me try harder. It probably gets the least rainfall, because all the Atlantic air usually rains over the west/south-west areas of the island. No?! Really? Gosh you're hard to please. Okay, I think Stephen Fry is from somewhere around there.

Any of the resident North Folk wanna help out?

Why do I feel that you can stick a shovel in the ground, anywhere in Britain, and come up with amazing things.  Especially in parking lots.  "Dead king?  Yes, I believe we have one. He's under the D26."

They found "a" tooth and a bunch of sets of dentures and partials.  It's England.

And did anyone see the other story at the bottom (which was just a video) about some community policeman getting arrested for DUI by normal police?   In America the guy taking the video would've been tasered for recording it all on hiscamera phone (I think).

English words are spelled as they were (or would have been) pronounced at some stage in the history of the language. Then the standard British pronunciation shifted to ape upper class twits who would mumble when confronted with a medium sized or longer word. - e.g. "Saint James" => "sinjin"

What civilization in an English trailer park might look like.

brantgoose: Meanwhile the trailer park has raised its fee from GBP 15 to GBP 30 to include admittance to the birthplace of British civilization.


Defining British civilisation is a bit of a difficult concept; the history of the islands is pretty much defined by migration and conquest.

zimbomba63: Why do I feel that you can stick a shovel in the ground, anywhere in Britain, and come up with amazing things.


Because people have lived here and - more importantly for archaeologists - built stuff here for ages?

re: Homo antecessor: It is suggested that it was an evolutionary link between Homo ergaster and Homo heidelbergensis, although Richard Klein believes that it was instead a separate species that evolved from Homo ergaster. Others believe that Homo antecessor is the same species as  Homo heidelbergensis, who inhabited Europe from 600,000 to 250,000 years ago.

/so, the antecessor is classified as either an ergaster or a heidelbergensis or something in between

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?
