A Special Past: The Story of the Quantock Hills.

What about the people of the Quantocks? What is their story? And how can we find out about it?

Long before they could write things down the people of the Quantocks began to leave clues about themselves: where they lived, what they made and how they used and changed the land itself. These clues are all around us if we know how to look.

The experts in this sort of evidence are called archaeologists. Human history goes back a very long way, so archaeologists split the time up into chunks, or periods. Each period of time has a special name to describe it. In every period some things changed while others stayed the same.
