Swanscombe

Résumé
Swanscombe /ˈswɒnzkəm/ is a village in the Borough of Dartford in Kent, England, and the civil parish of Swanscombe and Greenhithe. It is 4.4 miles west of Gravesend and 4.8 miles east of Dartford. History Prehistory Bone fragments and tools, representing the earliest humans known to have lived in England, have been found from 1935 onwards at the Barnfield Pit about outside the village. This site is now the Swanscombe Heritage Park. Swanscombe Man (now thought to be female) was a late homo erectus or an early Archaic homo sapiens. According to the Natural History Museum, however, the remains are those of a 400,000-year-old early Neanderthal woman. The c. 400,000-year-old skull fragments are kept at the Natural History Museum in London with a replica on display at the Dartford Museum. Lower levels of the Barnfield Pit yielded evidence of an even earlier, more primitive, human, dubbed Clactonian Man. Nearby digs on land for the Channel Tunnel Rail Link revealed
