History & Heritage

Norfolk has the earliest evidence of mankind found itself the Great Rift Valley in Africa – 850,000 year old human footprints from the days when the UK was still land linked to the Continent. Yes, the first tourists to our country came to visit Norfolk!

We have Neolithic flint mines, the first industrial centre in Europe, and we have 500,000 year flint axes.

Then we have the Roman invasion (including Boudicca), the Anglo Saxons and the Vikings. Then the Normans. All have left a fantastic legacy. Finally, the fifth invasion, the Friendly one… when tens of thousands of Americans brought us Coca Cola, peanut butter, chewing gum, nylons, swing and jazz.
