History of Hunmanby

Evidence exists showing that Hunmanby was occupied by much earlier people than the Danes. A landslip occurred in 1907 revealing a British chariot burial site from the 1st or 2nd century BC, in which a chariot was buried horse and all! A Tumulus on a local farm was opened up to reveal an ancient burial site containing 15 skeletons.

Roman pottery and flint axe and arrow heads are frequently found in and around Hunmanby.
