Epic story of human existence in Britain

February 10th, 2014

Imagine that the epic story of human existence in Britain just got half a million years older!

Yes, footprints recently found along the East Coast now dates it back 900,000 years, instead of 450,000 years as previously thought.

Hippos roamed in Trafalgar Square, lions and rhinos stalked the countryside, often when humans were driven out by dramatic climate change in the 10 ice ages that have swept this land.

A timely and eye-opening new exhibition opens later this week at London's Natural History Museum, and CNN’s Christiane Amanpour got a special preview with leading paleontologist Chris Stringer, who curated the exhibit.

    Hippos still roam in Trafalgar Square today. We just call them by a different name these days, "British women".
