Several species of humans have intermittently occupied the island known today as Britain for almost a million years. The earliest evidence of human occupation around 900,000 years ago is at Happisburgh on the Norfolk coast, with stone tools and footprints probably made by Homo Antecessor. The oldest human fossils, around 500,000 years old, are of Homo Heidelbergensis at Boxgrove in Sussex.
I decided, what also looks like some light years ago, to join the millions who had done so before me and make this sceptred isle my home.
Although it is sometimes hard to tell a center of one city from another here, the nature of the British Isles provides enough verity for a discerning eye and is in itself a photographers’ paradise. I am looking forward to bacchanal on its beauty for many years to come.
