DolceTracker| Reseaarchers in Britain believe that humans a physically different human species lived there several hundred thousand years earlier than previously believed. Pioneer Man was much like our human species, walking upright and using tools as a hunter gatherer. The discovery raises the possibility that Britain was the first place where humans adapted using fire to keep warm.
Both the date of human habitation and the cool temperatures in the region are surprising reasearchers. The era of Pioneer man was wiped out by an Ice Age, making these peoples one group of eight that have lived in Britain, based on archaeological research. via BBC News
