ABSTRACT
The Lower Palaeolithic site at the Boxgrove quarry in Sussex was featured in the first (1997/98) issue of Archaeology International, since when it has become internationally celebrated for the exceptionally detailed evidence it has provided of human occupation of a coastal habitat 500,000 years ago, towards the end of an interglacial period. New investigations of Boxgrove's place in the wider landscape are now under way, and there are plans for further excavations and the establishment of afield school at the site.
