Description
An engaging survey of a million years of human history and identity through ten archaeological digs. This book starts with the discovery of evidence of a Viking massacre at Weymouth in 2012 and the Anglo-Saxon Staffordshire Hoard in 2009, and journeying back ever deeper into early human history in Britain to the Happisburgh footprints discovered in 2013, the oldest known hominid footprints found outside Africa. This expert, discursive text explores how the application of new scientific techniques continue to enrich our understanding of life in Britain as well as the migrations of people and animals who came to populate these shores. Packed with information on recent analysis, archaeological techniques and thought-provoking ideas.
