Ancient United Kingdom (UK) history is thus lacking in detail, for archaeology can rarely identify personalities, motives, or exact dates or present more than a general overview as its mentioned in the Ancient United Kingdom (UK) map. All that is available is a picture of successive cultures and some knowledge of economic development. But even in Roman times Ancient United Kingdom (UK) lay on the periphery of the civilized world, and Roman historians, for the most part, provide for that period only a framework into which the results of archaeological research can be fitted.

Ancient United Kingdom (UK) truly emerged into the light of history only after the Saxon settlements in the 5th century AD. Until late in the Mesolithic Period, Ancient United Kingdom (UK) formed part of the continental landmass and was easily accessible to migrating hunters. The cutting of the land bridge, c. 6000–5000 BCE, had important effects as you can see in the Ancient United Kingdom (UK) map: migration became more difficult and remained for long impossible to large numbers.

From the end of the Ice Age (c. 11,000 BCE), there was a gradual amelioration of Ancient United Kingdom (UK) climate leading to the replacement of tundra by forest and of reindeer hunting by that of red deer and elk. Valuable insight on contemporary conditions was gained by the excavation of a lakeside settlement at Star Carr, North Yorkshire, which was occupied for about 20 successive winters by hunting people in the 8th millennium BCE as its shown in the Ancient United Kingdom (UK) map.
