colder climate; whether they built shelters, used clothing or made fires. Further, as there are no remains of human at the site, they possibly just visited it to scavenge or hunt. It is difficult to predict anything about the organization or population size of these people. The researchers do not know much about this early human, but they wonder that it could possibly be the extinct species ‘Homo antecessor’ or ‘the 'Pioneer Man' as it is the only species that was known at that time in Europe. The research team is still investigating the Happisburgh site, hoping to find human fossils one day. Even older sediments are being tried to be found out to work out on them to when the first humans really arrived in Britain.

This particular topic was chosen by the author as it satisfies the curiosity of the author to find out how and when the early humans settled from one place to other. Moreover, the topic attracted the author by giving details about the human settlement in such a developed nation of current times. The topic relates to biodiversity and human evolution very well. It can be said so because it talks of early humans taking next steps towards the evolution to modern man by adapting to colder climates either by lighting fires, building shelters or using fur for warmth. Adapting to colder environments is one of the biggest steps in the human evolution as most of the developed nations have colder environments. Changing environment had an adverse affect on the early humans as they moved from Africa which was relatively warmer to Europe or specifically Happisburgh which is relatively colder. The evidence comes from a quarry site at Happisburgh in East Anglia, which has been uncovered by coastal erosion. It included 78 knapped flint artefacts which the research team think could be used to pierce and cut meat or wood by hunter-gatherers. But they got well adapted to this colder environment as the time passed by (Miriam Frankel; 2010). REFERENCES Miriam Frankel. July, 2010.
