The Breckland Palaeolithic Project is a three year project that started in May 2016. The project examines the geological, archaeological and environmental record of East Anglia's Breckland to address questions of the environmental and cultural context of Britain's earliest occupants.

It also reviews the links between technology, culture and human evolution during the Hoxnian interglacial, and the distinctiveness of regional signatures after 400,000 years ago.
