It has been generally believed that some of our Neolithic predecessors were dark in complexion, as well as short. The Neolithic people lived on high grounds on Whitehawk Hill near the Brighton Race Course. These people belong to a race of dark complexion, small boned people, a tribe living in Brighton Sussex.

The Neolithic people lived on high grounds on Whitehawk Hill near the Race Course just a little to the South of the grandstand, and opposite the top of Freshfield Road, on the east the ground falls into Whitehawk Bottom, now the Whitehawk housing estate.

On the West the ground falls away fairly steep into Bakers Bottom which is now occupied by allotment gardens, where the land is pretty open for cultivation, and easily defendable from attack.

Here they kept their cattle, grew corn and barley and gather there food, flint and bone tools were found, a comb made out of red dear antler was found, five flint polish axes, and two unpolished axes, six flint arrow heads, flint scrapers were frequently common as was flint saws, notched in such a way as to give it a row of fine teeth, averaging 27 teeth per inch, over 200 of these saw were found.
