Secrets of north Norfolk's Ice Age era will be revealed at a talk, which will kick off a series of live informative evenings.

The spring season of events at the Community Hall in Garden Street, Cromer, gets under way this week.

Prof Tony Stuart (pictured) will be starting the series by talking about The Ice Age in Norfolk, in support of the Friends of Cromer Museum on Friday February 20 at 7.30pm.

It will be preceded by the Friends of Cromer Museum AGM at 7pm.

Prof Stuart led the team the dug out the world-famous mammoth skeleton out of the West Runton cliffs 20 years ago.

He has travelled the world in the course of his studies and his illustrated talk gives an up-to-date account of the latest developments in this part of Norfolk's history.

Earlier this month pre-historic remains of a rhinoceros were discovered a few metres away from where the mammoth skeleton was discovered.
