Laindon Hill

Artefacts from the Stone Age residents of Thurrock have been found in most parts of the area. Langdon Hills has been particularly identified as a home of Mesolithic hunter gatherers. Whenever the ground at the summit is disturbed, stone age evidence emerges. Finds from this area include flint blades, stone axes and pot boilers as well as Neolithic arrow heads. The above picture is from the cover of Panorama 34.
