Kents Cavern is Britain’s best known and most important Middle-Upper Palaeolithic site, and one that our project continues to work on. Particularly important is the Vestibule area of the cave, where Late Middle Palaeolithic and Early Upper Palaeolithic artefacts were excavated during the 1920s and 30s. Among the finds was the maxilla fragment “KC4” – the oldest modern human fossil in Britain, and among the oldest in Europe.
