"New research shows early humans were living in Britain around 700,000 years ago, substantially earlier than previously thought. Using new dating techniques, scientists found that flint tools unearthed in Pakefield, Suffolk, were 200,000 years older than the previous oldest finds."*
The Latest issue of British Archaeology January-February 2006) has a well illustrated 10 page article on the discovery.

Britain's first rabbit - and someone ate it
What did the Normans do for us? One traditional answer is bring rabbits. New evidence suggests that Romans had already done it. The butchered bones of a small Mediterranean-type rabbit have been found at Lynford, Norfolk, in a pit dating to 50BC-100AD. Our wild rabbits are thought to have evolved from Mediterranean ancestors. It is likely Romans brought them to Britain to trade, breed and eat. Coincidentally, the dig was close to another ancient butchery site - where Neanderthals had eaten mammoths. Two rabbit bones have also been found at third century AD Beddingham Roman villa, East Sussex.

Nature had a press conference with for of the people involved in the site:
