The early inhabitants of Britain, who arrived more than a thousand years before the Roman invasion, were the scattered remnants of the fallen city of Troy. They founded a city on the Thames and called it "Troia Newydd" (New Troy) which later became "Troynovant" or "Trinovantum".
King Lud (73 BC) re-named it "Caer-Ludd" (Lud's Town). It later became known as Kaerlundein and then London. When Lud died, he was buried near a gateway called Porthlud, which the Saxons called Ludgate.
The re-naming of the city has been a disaster for British history. Not only have we forgotten our links with ancient Troy, but we have also given ground to the advocates of evolution, who don't want us to know that, through the Trojans, we can trace our ancestry all the way back to Noah.

Once Homer's Illiad and Odyssey were popularized by the Romans (Vergil, who wrote the Aeneiad, Roman) everyone in Europe claimed to be descended from Trojans fleeing the sack of Troy. That doesn't make it true.

AFAIK they left no artifacts, but there may be a kernel of truth in some of these writings.

It seems that a decent mitochondrial DNA research could be more convincing.

Also there are some Megalithic sites around the North Sea with human remains dated >30,000 years.
