Cromer Public Meeting

In October 2012 an open meeting was held at the Cliftonville Hotel in Cromer and attended by 130 people. An overview of the Palaeolithic and the human fossil evidence was given by Chris Stringer, followed by a talk on the Cromer Forest-bed by Simon Parfitt and the West Runton elephant by Tony Stuart. The morning was concluded by the Norfolk Museum and Archaeology Service team of how fossils can be recorded.
