Reassessment of the early prehistoric record of Jersey

The site of La Cotte de St Brelade

The Quaternary Archaeology and Environments of Jersey project (QAEJ) is a multi-discipline research programme carried out under the direction of a team drawn from University College London, the Centre for the Archaeology of Human Origins (CAHO, University of Southampton), The British Museum, AHOB 3, the University of Manchester and the University of Wales, Trinity Saint David.

The principle aim of the project is to provide a reassessment of the early prehistoric record of Jersey through targeted sampling and key-hole excavation of poorly understood find spots and to initiate a major reassessment of the prominent Neanderthal site of La Cotte de St Brelade.

In 2010, intensive fieldwork demonstrated the rich potential for early prehistoric archaeology on the island and these have formed the basis for future field research to date.
