theres evidence of flint knapping in new brighton i believe, which is interesting as theres no flint in the local vicinity

meols shoreline has the ancient sunken forest which shows up after big tides, amongst these tree stumps can be seen post holes from structures. Wether they are housing or pens ive no idea but have seen a few of them over the years

I'm surprised that there isn't much in the way of fishing villages on the Wirral, there is certainly enough coastline.

Perhaps its just my ignorance, but I'm only aware of a couple of mentions.

.

There are some erratics (large boulders from the Ice Age) in Mayer Park in Bebington.....not sure if they were dropped by the glacier were they now are or whether Joseph Mayer put them there as an attraction.

Dinosaur footprints from 200million years ago were found in the sandstone in Storeton Woods in 1838. Wikipaedia says: 'The species was named Chirotherium Storetonese after the site of discovery. Examples of these footprints can be seen in World Museum Liverpool and the Williamson Art Gallery in Birkenhead, and also in Christ Church, Kings Road, Bebington.'
