Rabbits Unearth Rare Artifacts
While constructing their intricate warrens, wild rabbits living on Land’s End, the westernmost point in England, recently unearthed some rare ancient treasures.
Big Heritage, a nonprofit archaeology organization, went on to conduct a thorough investigation of the site. The group found flint tools, hide scrapers and arrowheads that dated back at least 5,000 years.
“It’s amazing how a family of rabbits have set in motion an incredible journey of discovery. Within the immediate vicinity of Land’s End, we were able to see a visible timeline of Britain, stretching deep into prehistory,” says Big Heritage’s Dean Paton. “Whilst the landscape will have changed considerably over time, it’s likely that the stunning natural beauty of the site would have always been significant to humans.”
