‘Jersey Archaeology’ series

On 12th October 2010, Jersey Post will introduce a new series entitled 'Jersey Archaeology'.

With so much emphasis on the Island's natural beauty, it is easy to bypass the fact that it is home to one of Europe's most important archaeological sites, known as La Cotte de St Brelade.

Serious excavations first began 100 years ago in 1910 and Prince Charles, himself a student of archaeology and anthropology at Cambridge University, joined in a dig at La Cotte in 1968. Dr Paul Pettitt, senior lecturer in Palaeolithic Archaeology at Sheffield University and consultant to the BBC and independent television productions, has kindly penned the accompanying narrative which can be found on the First Day Cover envelope and Presentation Pack.
