Creswell Crags forms part of one of Europe's most important archaeological landscapes preserving the most significant cluster of cave sites inhabited during the last Ice Age in Britain.
The caves provided shelter for Neanderthal and anatomically modern people through a crucial period of human evolution between 130,000 and 10,000 years ago. Britain's oldest work of art, a fine engraving of a horse found in Robin Hood Cave and the recent cave art discoveries in Church Hole connects us with the great era of cave painting on the continent.
The British Museum has been working with the Creswell Crags team on an ongoing basis in order to facilitate the building of a new museum, which will contain a long-term loan of British Museum material.
