EDITORS COMMENTS
1. Title: "A Glimpse into the Past: The Prehistoric Landscape of Boxgrove, West Sussex" Boxgrove Quarry, located in West Sussex, England, is a site of significant archaeological importance, offering a unique window into the prehistoric past. This panorama reconstruction drawing by Peter Dunn from Historic England Graphics Team brings the ancient landscape to life, inviting us on a journey through time. The illustration showcases the breathtaking cliffs of Boxgrove, overlooking the meandering river that once flowed through this area. The meticulously detailed drawing highlights the diverse terrain, featuring rolling hills, wooded areas, and open grasslands, all interspersed with the telltale signs of human activity. The prehistoric inhabitants of this region, who lived during the Middle Paleolithic period around 500,000 years ago, left behind a rich archaeological record. The discovery of numerous stone tools and animal bones at Boxgrove Quarry has provided valuable insights into their daily lives and hunting practices. The drawing also emphasizes the strategic location of the quarry, which offered the early humans access to both the river and the cliffs. They likely utilized the river for transportation and water, while the cliffs provided them with essential resources such as flint for toolmaking. This stunning illustration serves as a testament to the rich history hidden within the landscapes of England. It invites us to appreciate the beauty of the past and the ingenuity of our prehistoric ancestors, who thrived in this very spot long before our modern world existed. As we gaze upon this image, we are reminded of the enduring connection between the past and the present, and the importance of preserving and understanding our ancient heritage.
