Ice Age

Jersey is a special place for archaeologists to learn about the Ice Age because of the amount and type of artefacts that they have found in Jersey.

The different types of tools and bones tell us a story over a very long period of time, which lets archaeologists work out what happened to the people and animals living on Jersey and the rest of Europe. There are some very special artefacts that have been found in Jersey including Neanderthal teeth, mammoth skulls, flint tools and plaquettes (small pieces of stone with markings on them, making them probably the oldest art found in Britain).
