Ancient Human Occupation of Britain (AHOB)
A research project of the Department of Archaeology.
This is a major project funded by the Leverhulme Trust (£2.2 million). It has a very large remit involving a number of key questions about the Human Occupation of Britain from the earliest occupation to the end of the last glaciation. Dr. Mark White is one of the founding members of AHOB, alongside Chris Stringer and Andy Currant (NHM); Jim Rose and Danielle Schreve (RHUL), Simon Parfitt (UCL); Nick Ashton and Dr. Roger Jacobi (BM); and Simon Lewis and Dave Polly (QMC). AHOB has enjoyed considerable success during the past 5 years, including involvement in the Lynford Neanderthal site as well as the earliest known site in Britain (at Pakefield), and has generated several books and a large number of papers. It has 3 years to run.
