Men and women have peopled our island for the best part of a million years. But our ancient ancestors and their way of life have largely been a mystery to us. Who were the first Vritons and what sort of world did they occupy?
Neil Oliver uses archaeological artefacts, geography and psychology to weave colour and humanity into the history of the ancient Britons. Focusing on some extraordinary finds of recent years, he turns a spotlight onto the first people to occupy these islands and their battle for survival.
It's a surprisingly intimate story,bringing to life those warriors, cheiftans and farmers who called Britain 'home' thusands of years before us.
