Back to Owlbut's History of England

Two thousand two hundred years in which a complete change of lifestyle took place. Homes became permanent, animals were kept for food, other food was grown near the home and people started to live in groups. People had possessions such as knives and axes, plates and cups or beakers to help them live the life they wanted.

The time of the hunter gatherer was over. It was the start of a lifestyle moving closer to the one we have now. Our video intro is on the right.


At the start of this period of history, the estimated population of England (to the nearest ten thousand) was 16,000 or 4,000 houses on our strange method, explained in the Mesolithic Age introduction.
