Who were the first Britons? Famed archaeologist Neil Oliver answers that question and more, excavating the past to weave an epic story of half-a-million years, from the mists of prehistory to the departure of the Roman Empire in the fifth century AD. As gripping as any novel, filled with fascinating facts and charismatic figures, this is popular history at its finest--a fitting monument to a land that has been home to an extraordinarily diverse range of cultures and peoples.

A journey into an ancient world - '...a journey through time, as well as through landscape. These two dimensions will provide material for a travelogue that will encourage readers to look at and see their old familiar landscapes, in different ways. Even those parts that people think of as 'wild', 'natural' or 'untouched' are in fact the product of the hand of men and women at work for 12,000 and more years.
