The earliest human activity in Britain took place during the Pleistocene epoch.The oldest known Isle of Wight site is at Priory Bay, St Helens, where flint hand axes and other implements have been found.The Longstone is a giant upright stone but has a smaller stone lying at its base.It has been suggested that the positioning focuses the light of the rising sun into the burial chamber where the spirits of the dead might be awakened by the sun's rays.The Longstone is one of just three surviving field monuments from the Neolithic period on the Isle of Wight.The others are a mortuary enclosure, where the dead were left exposed until the bones had been picked clean before burial (on Tennyson Down), and a long barrow on Afton Down.
Dating from the New Stone Age (around 4,000 - 2,400 BC), it was part of a communal burial site called a long barrow.
The Island was taken by the 2nd Legion under the command of Vespasian who was just 34.
The most likely landing place was the large expanse of land-locked tidal water later known as Brading Haven (until its 19th century reclamation.) The Celtic population was not in a position to defend the Island against the highly disciplined 5,000-strong 2nd Legion and it is quite possible that Vespasian's 'conquest' was achieved without bloodshed.
These have been dated to 425,000 - 300,000 years ago.
During the entire Palaeolithic (Old Stone Age) humans were hunter-gatherers who had a limited impact on the environment.
